Barnes County Sheriff's Department deputies and North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers on Monday captured a Mayville man who Minnesota state troopers began pursuing while he was driving a pickup truck on Interstate 94 to Interstate 29 at exit 69.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, at 4:27 p.m., a Minnesota State trooper pursued a 1982 Chevrolet pickup into North Dakota. The pursuit traveled north from I-94 to I-29 exit 69. The suspect fled west on Cass County Road 20 into rural Cass County, west and north of Harwood. Near Prosper, North Dakota Highway Patrol units became involved and took over the pursuit as it continued west and north of Prosper.

At 5:22 p.m., the suspect ran out of gas and fled his vehicle on foot into a tree row near the intersection of 131st Ave. and 25th St. SE in Barnes County, northwest of Tower City. Seven minutes later, NDHP troopers and Barnes County Sheriff’s Department deputies took the suspect into custody.

Barnes County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Dan Anderson, and deputies Doug Kiefert and Steve Loibl were all involved in the capture, Loibl said on Tuesday.

David Wayne Schiebe, 40, of Mayville, was arrested for the following charges:
*misdemeanor DUI,
*fleeing a peace officer,
*unlawful ingestion of a controlled substance,
*unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia,
*felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and
*unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

In addition to the above charges, Schiebe had a warrant for his arrest from North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for a parole violation.
Authorities believe Schiebe had ingested a large amount of methamphetamine and was transported by ambulance to Essentia Hospital in Fargo. He was placed in observation until early hours Tuesday morning, when he was transported to the Cass County jail and placed into custody.

Loibl said Barnes County Sheriff's deputies became involved after hearing reports on the chase on the radio. “We had been listening, and jumped in when they came into Barnes County.”

Loibl said the capture took place at about the same location where Barnes County deputies helped capture an escaped prisoner near Tower City in September of 2012. “We didn't have to harvest the cornfield to capture (Schiebe),” Loibl said. “This time when he bailed out of the pickup truck he ran into the tree row.”
