(Crescent) The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office has released more information in regards to Wednesday’s high speed chase that ended with the suspect vehicle crashing into the Missouri River.
Pott County Sheriff Jeff Danker says there is a good chance that the missing suspect in this case has drowned.
“The Omaha police helicopter did observe the individual in the water, in the river. They thought he went under. There is a possibility, probably a good possibility he did drowned, but we don’t know for sure. We are still trying to positively identify this individual.”
Danker categorized the two suspects in custody, 27-year-old Jeffrey Huff and 28-year-old Heidi Baxter, as uncooperative.
“I believe it was theft and burglary charges. It was a stolen vehicle and then there were some other items, some other household items that were in the vehicle that were taken in the burglary.”
The original pursuit began Wednesday afternoon near Missouri Valley and ended in the Missouri River near Crescent.
