Police arrested a Virginia man after a vehicle was stolen from the Hibbing Minnesota National Guard Armory Wednesday afternoon.
The incident occurred at approximately 12:53 p.m. The responding Hibbing Police Department officers were provided updated information by maintenance personnel from the armory who had followed the vehicle, according to a news release.
Officers caught up with the stolen heavy expanded mobility tactical truck wrecker pulling a trailer on state Highway 37, where the vehicle was pulled over and the driver, a 34-year-old Virginia man, was taken into custody.
The man is being held at the St. Louis County Jail in Hibbing pending possible charges of theft of a motor vehicle and fourth degree driving while intoxicated. The News Tribune does not generally print the names of people accused of crimes until charges are filed.
The incident continues to be investigated. The vehicle and trailer were recovered with only minor damages, authorities said.
