FOREST CITY, Iowa – An ATV chase from Iowa into Minnesota results in probation for a Winnebago County man.
Miguel Angel Romo, 22, received seven days in jail, two years of probation, and a $315 fine. He was arrested in July 2017. Law enforcement says the Buffalo Center man was seen riding a 4-wheel ATV at 67 miles an hour. When an officer tried to pull Romo over, he reportedly accelerated to 80 to 90 miles an hour in a pursuit that went into Faribault County, Minnesota.
A Winnebago County sheriff’s deputy says he and his K9 partner found Romo hiding beside his ATV in the middle of a corn field. A bag containing marijuana and a scale and grinder was found nearby.
Romo wound up pleading guilty to eluding and possession of marijuana – 1st offense.
