STARK COUNTY, N.D. — Three juvenile males are in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase of over 60 miles on Interstate 94 in western North Dakota.
The juveniles are alleged to have stolen the vehicle in order to flee from Home on the Range.

The minors were arrested by the Stark County Sheriff's Office after the high-speed chase Thursday afternoon, which ended when officers deployed road spikes.

The chase began when a North Dakota Highway Patrol officer spotted the vehicle on I-94 in Golden Valley County. The Patrol pursued the vehicle into Billings and Stark counties, where respective deputies assisted in the chase. Due to the high rates of speed, reported at more than 130 miles per hour, a pursuit intervention maneuver was determined to be unsafe and instead the Stark County Sheriff’s Office deployed road spikes just west of Dickinson’s city limits.

The suspects’ vehicle then led the roadway and rolled, into the center median ditch. The juveniles were taken into custody by the Stark County Sheriff’s Office and transported for medical evaluation to CHI St. Alexius in Dickinson.

"They didn't appear to have any serious injuries," Lt. Eldon Meher said.


The juveniles were residents at Home on the Range, which is a therapeutic, working ranch located in western North Dakota. The facility provides education, therapy, spiritual guidance and recreational/work activities for troubled youth.

The incident remains under investigation by the Patrol, which will determine if and what charges are filed against the three suspects.

Other agencies involved included the North Dakota Game & Fish Department and the Southwest Narcotics Task Force
