On the above date and time, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office became involved in an incident starting at the Handimart gas station in Arlington, SD. It was found an unknown male and unknown female used a rifle to threaten a victim and steal their vehicle. Once the two were in possession of the now stolen vehicle, it was driven at a high rate of speed to Volga, SD. In Volga, the two attempted to take another vehicle from a customer at Casey’s gas station in the 400blk US14 by punching the customer in the face. The customer fought back, and the two suspects fled in the vehicle stolen from Arlington. The vehicle then fled eastbound on US14 where it was eventually stopped in the lane of traffic and was found by another citizen. Thankfully the citizen was able to alert other vehicles who would likely have impacted the abandoned vehicle. The victim from the assault in Volga described the male suspect as 6’1” to 6’3”, muscular wearing a dark grey sweatshirt, sweatpants and black stocking cap. The female was described as heavy, 5’8” and wearing a white sweatshirt and ball cap. The Brookings County Sheriff’s Office, South Dakota Highway Patrol, Brookings Police and Moody County Sheriff’s Office conducted and extensive search of the area including the use of unmanned aerial vehicles with thermal imagers. At this time, the search for these two suspects continues. Area residents are reminded to remove keys from vehicles, lock their doors, monitor home security systems and call 911 immediately if unknown individuals are observed.
