Two in custody after 40-mile pursuit
RENVILLE - Law enforcement officers took two people into custody Sunday after a nearly 40-mile pursuit that included a chase through three cities in Renville and Kandiyohi counties.
Renville Police Chief Aaron Slagter said the Renville Police Department along with the Renville County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota State Patrol, Yellow Medicine County Sheriff’s Office, and the Upper Sioux Police Department took into custody Xavier L. Heeder, 25, of Minneapolis, and Melany M. Gold, 40, of St. Paul.
Slagter said in a news release that the incident started as an attempted traffic stop when officers found the vehicle the individuals were driving was entered as stolen from Freeborn County.
The driver of the vehicle, Gold, did not stop for law enforcement and a pursuit initiated. Pursuit speeds were between 30 and
40 miles per hour through residential streets, and 55 and 65 outside of the cities.
The pursuit covered nearly 40 miles and went through the communities of Renville, Sacred Heart, and Raymond. Multiple attempts of precision immobilization techniques by State Patrol were able to end the pursuit in a cut bean field in the 7500 block of County Road 7 in Kandiyohi County, according to Slagter.
Both suspects were taken into custody without further incident and transported and held at the Renville County Jail.
Gold is being held on felony fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and Heeder is being held on multiple felony warrants as well as being a felon convicted of crime of violence in possession of firearms or ammunition, Slagter said.
