Sheldon, Iowa — A man who allegedly assaulted an officer and allegedly stole a number of vehicles, including a Sheldon Pizza Ranch delivery van is reportedly now in custody — in Kansas City.
According to Worthington, Minnesota Police officers, on Friday morning the man was in the Sanford Worthington Hospital. He allegedly assaulted an officer to get free and then allegedly stole a car.
Officers believe he then drove that vehicle to Sheldon, where he stole one of the Pizza Ranch delivery vans, and continued southbound. He then allegedly turned up at the Willer Family Farm in Lawton, Iowa, where he is said to have ditched the pizza van and stole a Peterbilt semi truck with a grain trailer.
Casey Willer says he was told that a few hours later, around 1 PM, the truck was spotted in St. Joseph, Missouri. That’s over 230 miles away. He was told the truck struck some equipment there. The Willers were told the suspect was later arrested in Kansas City, Missouri, but the truck had not been found. From Worthington to Kansas City is about 375 miles.
An employee of the Sheldon Pizza Ranch confirms that the delivery van is back in Sheldon.
(You will see a black Honda turn towards Cenex, disappear from the the screen, then nearly rear end a beer semi. The car will then cross Highway 18 into Pizza Ranch’s parking lot, go into the parking lot of Chinese Chef, and then return to Pizza Ranch. You will then see a Pizza Ranch van leaving on Highway 18)
