Suspect apprehended after stand-off near St. Regis

Print Article

Montana Highway Patrol apprehended a suspect about three miles east of St. Regis following a vehicle pursuit Sunday, June 16 at around 8 p.m., according to Montana Highway Sgt. Shawn Smalley.

Highway dispatchers received a traffic complaint of a vehicle speeding at more than 100 miles per hour. A trooper followed the suspect, who was heading eastbound, near DeBorgia.

The vehicle did not stop and continued to mile marker 75 and took the Sloway road exit off Interstate 90. The suspect drove through the closed section and returned to Interstate 90 heading westbound.

The suspect continued until about three miles east of St. Regis, when his vehicle’s flat tires forced him to pull over.

“At that time, we had a stand-off then after about an hour we were able to apprehend the suspect,” Sgt. Smalley said.

The Mineral County Sheriff’s Office, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, St. Regis Volunteer Fire Department and Superior Ambulance assisted with the pursuit.
