CASS COUNTY, Mich. — A police dog located a woman being sought after a pursuit and crash early Sunday morning.
Cass County Sheriff Richard Behnke Reports that at 4:46 a.m. Sunday the Pokagon Band Tribal Police Department was involved in a vehicle pursuit in the city of Dowagiac.
The driver of the vehicle, a 27-year-old woman from Dowagiac, fled from the officers and crashed on Johnson Street near Budlow Street. Once the vehicle came to a stop, the driver fled from officers in an unknown direction.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit was requested to respond to attempt to track the subject. A short time later police dog Faust located the female driver in a wooded area near the crash location while hiding in thick underbrush.
The woman was taken to Dowagiac Lee Memorial Hospital for a medical evaluation and then she was transported to the Cass County Jail on charges of operating while intoxicated, fleeing and eluding, leaving the scene of a traffic crash, possession of marijuana, driving without a license and having an open container.
She also had an outstanding warrant for her arrest.
The woman’s name is being withheld pending her arraignment in court on Monday.
