Grand Forks County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Grand Forks man in rural Thompson, N.D., Wednesday morning after he fled the scene of a hit and run accident in Grand Forks in a stolen vehicle.

Todd Wayne Kvasager, 28, was arrested in an abandoned farm yard after driving into a shelterbelt, doing significant damage to a 2011 Chevy Silverado that had been reported stolen according to a department news release.

He was charged with theft of a vehicle, driving under the influence of drugs, possession of meth paraphernalia and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities initially responded around 10 a.m. to a call of an erratic driver south of Grand Forks, which matched the description of a red truck that police say had sideswiped an unattended gold Mitsubishi in Grand Forks and left the scene of the accident.

According to court documents, Kvasager stole the vehicle at the Ramada Inn. When deputies arrested Kvasager, he had syringe, three needles and a baggy with white residue.

Possession of drug paraphernalia is a Class C felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. The other two charges are misdemeanors.
