The passenger authorities believe was involved in a high-speed chase in Sherburne County Thursday is in custody.
But the search for the driver continues.
A release from the Sherburne County Sheriff's Department states 24-year-old Victoria Ann Miller was arrested Friday morning on the 7200 block of 110th Avenue Southeast in Clear Lake Township after deputies received a call from a resident.
But the search is still on for 38-year-old Jeremiah Harvey Schwarzkopf, whom authorities believe was driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen in St. Cloud.
The release states an unmarked squad car encountered the vehicle in Clear Lake at around 11:20 a.m. Thursday and began to follow it. It eventually turned into the driveway of a residence on the 8800 block of 71st Street in Clear Lake Township.
Other deputies arrived, including a marked squad car with lights flashing. But the release alleges the driver of the vehicle ignored efforts to stop him, instead crashing into an unmarked squad car before going through a ditch and back onto 71st Street.
A chase ensured with the vehicle reportedly leaving the road and going into a cornfield, then continuing through a bean field before crossing County Road 55 and going into a cornfield on the other side.
It eventually crashed into a grove of trees, and authorities set up a perimeter. But they could not locate either suspect.
Another perimeter was set up Thursday afternoon after a male matching Schwarzkopf's description and a female were seen in the area of the 7000 block of 100th Avenue Southeast. There, they reportedly told a resident they had gotten in trouble and needed help.
But again, they were unable to be located.
Anyone with information on Schwarzkopf's whereabouts is asked to call the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office at 763-765-3500.
