BELTRAMI COUNTY, Minn. (Valley News Live) - One man is in jail after leading deputies on a chase in Beltrami County, Minnesota.

Sheriff Jason Riggs says Beltrami County deputies were conducting increased patrols in the area of Ten Lake Township because of a report about a suspicious vehicle in the area.

On the morning of March 17, a deputy saw a car matching the description of the suspicious vehicle near the intersection of Jenkins Road SE and Mission Road SE. The deputy tried to pull the vehicle over, but the man who was driving took off.

The chase led deputies about 12 miles through township and county roads. Deputies used stopped sticks and deflated three of the vehicle’s tires. 54-year-old Kevin Allen Armstrong was taken into custody near Pennington, which is northeast of Cass Lake. He was booked into the Beltrami County jail on charges of fleeing in a motor vehicle and driving while impaired.
