A Delhi driver was tracked down by a drone after fleeing from authorities.
The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says last Wednesday night, their deputies tried pulling over a vehicle east of Hazleton near the intersection of 130th Street and Nathan Bethel Avenue. When the deputy made contact with the driver, 47-year old Jeremiah DeGraw, he tried fleeing in his vehicle.
DeGraw entered a cornfield and got out of his vehicle, running on foot. Authorities set up a perimeter and initiated a search.
A drone deployed with help from the Independence Fire Department helped authorities locate DeGraw within just one minute. He was taken into custody without incident.
DeGraw has been charged with Interference with Official Acts and Reckless Driving.
The incident remains under investigation and further charges may be pending.
