Armed suspects elude law enforcement


November 1, 2017

Law enforcement officers from the area searched into Tuesday for a suspect following a chase in which suspects eluded officers near the county line.

According to unofficial reports, the Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Office and Nebraska State Patrol chased the suspects to near the Cheyenne-Kimball County line.

After eluding officers, the suspects, believed to be armed, were reported to have stolen another vehicle.

Because of the suspects remaining at-large, Kimball Schools were closed Tuesday. Potter-Dix schools were open, although school officials said parents were given the option of keeping their children at home.

It was reported authorities encouraged people to lock all vehicles, homes, and outbuildings.

With officers being busy with the search and a number of accidents Tuesday, the Sun-Telegraph was unable to obtain further updates prior to press deadline.
