The St. Croix Tribal Police Department was looking for information regarding a suspect following a police chase in Burnett County.
In a social media post, Tribal PD alleged that officers attempted to stop a vehicle leaving the Danbury Casino Sunday, March 1 around 7:30 a.m. The post alleged that Shaun J. Belisle, 34, Siren, was driving the vehicle and stated he has an active felony probation warrant.
Police allegedly found 8.04 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle in three separate gem baggies found on the floor of the driver’s seat.
Authorities said Belisle is currently wanted for felony probation warrant, felony fleeing, possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, reckless endangerment and a number of other driving related issues.
The vehicle allegedly reached speeds over 100 mph traveling on State Highway 77.
“A pursuit started as the vehicle reached speeds over 100 mph. The pursuit went west on State Highway 77 and then southbound on County Road F,” the post states. “The suspect vehicle then attempted to turn north onto St. Croix Trail and crashed in the ditch. Shaun fled on foot westbound into the woods. The vehicle was searched for other occupants and a perimeter was set up for a K9 track.”
Burnett County’s K9 unit tracker was called to the scene to locate Belisle but was unsuccessful.
On Tuesday evening Tribal PD went back to social media to announce Belisle was located and in custody in Pine City, Minn.
