NEWS RELEASE FROM THE VERNON COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE

Pursuit leads to multiple agency manhunt, most wanted still at large

Vernon County authorities say a wanted felon remains at large after a lengthy pursuit Tuesday evening. According to a press release from the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office, Dillon Reed, who has been listed as one of Vernon County’s Most Wanted was spotted in Nevada driving a red Camero Tuesday afternoon. Deputies spotted the red Camero a short time later but the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed. The pursuit lead deputies near the Harwood area where Reed abandoned his car behind a building on 2500 road where Reed and a passenger fled from the car. Lucy, Vernon County’s new K-9 lead deputies to the passenger who was hiding in a barn. A short time after the passenger was taken into custody, deputies were notified that a state trooper, who had responded to assist, was in a foot pursuit of Reed.

Multiple units from Vernon County, members of the highway patrol, conservation department, and the Bates County Sheriff’s Office responded and assisted in the search for Reed. “The search became difficult because it had become dark and there was a lot of places to hide” said Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher. The search lasted until early Wednesday morning before it was called off. The Sheriff’s office has been actively seeking Reed who is wanted for parole violations and other charges. “We arrested Reed last year on drug charges but he has already been paroled and now we’re back to chasing him again” said Mosher. The name of the passenger has not been released pending the completion of the investigation. The Sheriff is asking for anyone with information about Dillon Reed contact the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office at 417-667-6042.
