Two arrested in Jamestown police pursuit

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Two suspects were arrested on multiple violations after they fled from police officers in Jamestown on Friday night, Feb. 3.

At about 9:54 p.m., the vehicle was spotted leaving Casey's General Store North. The red Jeep did not stop for police officers and continued through residential areas of northeast Jamestown before heading northbound out of city limits toward the Jamestown Marina on the east side of the Jamestown Reservoir.

The driver, Cody Deese, had a probation hold and suspended driver's license.

Officers set up spike strips at the intersection of Highway 20 and East Lakeside Road. The vehicle evaded the spike strips and continued east on 32nd Street SE at speeds of around 55 mph.

The vehicle became disabled in a snowdrift on a section line near 88th Avenue Southeast, where Deese and passenger Jessica Poux were taken into custody at about 10:10 p.m.

At some point during the pursuit, Deese and Poux switched positions in the vehicle.

Deese is being held in Stutsman County Correctional Center on charges of driving on a suspended license, attempting to elude in a motor vehicle. He is also on a parole and probation hold. Poux is being held for fleeing or attempting to elude in a motor vehicle.
