LAKE LILLIAN — A North Dakota man was apprehended Sunday in Kandiyohi County after law enforcement officers terminated a pursuit three times for safety reasons in Big Stone, Chippewa and Kandiyohi counties.

According to a news release from the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office, deputies on Sunday were monitoring radio traffic of a black Cadillac car being pursued eastbound by the Big Stone County Sheriff's Office. That pursuit was terminated.

Shortly thereafter, the Cadillac was reported in a pursuit with Chippewa County officers, and that action was terminated just outside of Clara City.

Around 4 p.m. Sunday, a Kandiyohi County sheriff's deputy located the vehicle on Minnesota Highway 7 in the southeastern part of the county and a short pursuit began.

According to the news release from Sgt. Tim Fischer, that pursuit also was terminated due to safety reasons, but the deputy continued to follow the vehicle at a distance.

Assisting agencies in the pursuit in Kandiyohi County included the Renville County Sheriff's Office, Willmar Police Department and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
