A Hibbing man is in custody following a 90 mile high speed pursuit that spanned three counties on Wednesday.
The St. Louis County Sheriff's department said it all started when the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force attempted to stop the suspect at a gas station in Hibbing.
This was around 6pm on Wednesday. They say the 29-year-old has several felony warrants, including felon in possession of a firearm and multiple drug offenses.
According to the department, the suspect fled, crossing into both Itasca and Koochiching Counties, for a total of about an hour, and traveling about 90 miles.
It ended back in St. Louis County, when officers deployed tire deflation devices and a Precision Immobilization Technique (P.I.T.).
The suspect is expected to be charged on Friday.
