Reports from the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office

The Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office responded to a driving complaint of a vehicle that was driving erratically and had struck another vehicle at highway speeds on Highway 52 between Ossian and Calmar at 9:44 p.m. Dec. 30. The striking vehicle did not stop and continued. Deputies located the vehicle, on Highway 52, north of Calmar and attempted to make a traffic stop. The vehicle fled from deputies which led to a pursuit. The vehicle eventually went west bound on Highway 9. With the assistance of the Howard County Sheriff’s Office and Cresco Police Department, stop sticks were deployed. The vehicle continued and was later located unoccupied, on fire and disabled with tire damage on a gravel road north of Kendallville. A short time later a deputy located registered owner, Kaden Brown, age 18, of Castalia, walking on the gravel road. Subsequently, Kaden Brown was arrested and transported to the Winneshiek County Jail for D felony eluding, reckless driving and speeding. This incident remains under investigation with additional charges pending. The Howard County Sheriff’s Office, Cresco Police Department and Harmony Fire Department assisted the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office.
