Law enforcement officers and a canine unit have surrounded a man hiding in a cornfield in Roberts County, S.D., suspected of stealing a red F150 Ford pickup truck out of Lincoln County, Minn.

The truck was reportedly seen Monday afternoon in Jefferson Park, Breckenridge. A traffic stop by Breckenridge Police officers took off into a high-speed chase from Breckenridge into Wahpeton, said Breckenridge Police Chief Nate Harder.

Richland County Sheriff's deputies picked up the chase, Harder said, and tracked the suspect into Roberts County, S.D.

"The vehicle has been recovered," Harder said. "The search for the suspect is ongoing. He's a person of interest in other crimes."

More information will be posted as it's released.
