WORTH COUNTY, Iowa – A wanted man is behind bars after a foot pursuit Sunday night.
The Worth County Sheriff’s Office said at 6:53 p.m. Sunday, a deputy conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Partridge Ave. and 485th St. and learned the passenger had a felony drug warrant for his arrest.
While attempting to detain 39-year-old Brandon Hauge, of Northwood, he took off on foot and a pursuit ensued, the Sheriff’s Office said. He was eventually arrested and taken into custody for the active warrant, possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, failure to affix a drug tax stamp, possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with official acts.
Around 5 grams of methamphetamine were found along with a pipe, a torch lighter and “a substantial amount of cash,” authorities said.
Hauge is being held in the Worth County Jail on $30,000 bond.
