Lincoln County Deputies Pursue Three Suspects, Two Remain At Large

Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Facebook

After two Lincoln county deputies chased separate vehicles in Merrill early this morning, a man was arrested on charges of felony fleeing and felony bail jumping.

Two other suspects have yet to be found, and an investigation is ongoing.

The Lincoln County Sherriff’s Office said a pursuit began when a patrol deputy found three suspicious cars at a storage unit.

When the deputy approached, the cars fled, prompting the deputy to chase one vehicle and call for backup.

Another deputy found and chased one of the other cars.

The sheriff's office said both pursuits ended in Merrill City limits, where the drivers got out of their vehicles and ran off.

The two cars are being held as evidence.

The third vehicle was found later in a rural area north of Merrill. It is also being held.
