The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says that on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, they responded to a suspicious vehicle parked on the side of the road near the Highway 75 and 220th St intersection, six miles south of Rock Rapids’ south side. As a Lyon County deputy arrived in the area the vehicle left the scene. It was allegedly observed traveling at a high rate of speed and passing in a prohibited area. They report that the deputy activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle. Sheriff’s officials say the vehicle continued traveling at a high rate of speed and passed vehicles in prohibited areas. They tell us that another Lyon County deputy deployed his spike strips on the south edge of Rock Rapids city limits. The vehicle struck the spike strips and continued into the city at a high rate of speed, again allegedly passing in a prohibited area. They say the vehicle attempted to turn westbound on Highway 9 but was unable to make the turn as all four tires had been deflated by the spike strips. The driver, identified as 21-year-old Bayron Revolorio Garcia, was arrested.
