DEVILS LAKE — Two men were arrested after a vehicle chase in Devils Lake on Saturday night, April 2.

Sebastian Davis, 20, and Colin Gene Edwards, 18, are in custody in connection with the chase. The Ramsey County State’s Attorney’s Office is still reviewing charges.

According to Susan Schwab, Devils Lake Police Department detective, Devils Lake police officers were informed on Saturday evening that a 2007 Honda CRV, reported stolen by the Grand Forks Police Department, was driving toward Devils Lake. At 8:16 p.m., a North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper reported they were in pursuit of the vehicle, moving westbound toward Devils Lake. She said spike strips were placed in Devils Lake in an attempt to slow the vehicle.

Officers performed a pit maneuver, which stopped the vehicle near 14th Street Northwest and Third Avenue Northwest, close to the North Dakota School for the Deaf. The suspects fled on foot and were taken into custody by the Devils Lake police officers near the 100 block of 14th Street Northwest.

The police department said it responds to several of these calls per year and “would like to remind people to properly check or handle any firearm in a safe manner.”

Schwab expects Davis to be charged with fleeing on foot, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, and Edwards to be charged with fleeing in a motor vehicle, fleeing on foot, reckless endangerment, driving under suspension, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and possession of marijuana.
