The Clay County Sheriff’s office reports that about 1:45 on Tuesday afternoon (4/23), their deputies responded to a Criminal Trespassing complaint at 4730 240th Avenue. Forty-five-year-old Christopher Richard Wood of Webb is accused of trespassing onto the property and attempting to enter the home. The report alleges Wood then left the home but remained in the area.
Deputies located Wood in downtown Webb. As a Deputy exited his vehicle and approached to speak with Wood, Wood ran to his vehicle and fled from the scene at a high rate of speed. Deputies pursued.
Prompt response from additional Clay County Deputies and Iowa State Patrol lead to Wood’s apprehension in the 2300 mile of county road B-53, near Greenville, over 11 miles from Webb.
Wood was taken into custody and charged with four counts of Felony Eluding, two counts of Reckless Driving, two counts of Careless Driving, two Stop Sign Violations, four counts of Interference with Official Acts, One citation for speed, and one count of Criminal Trespassing. Wood was released on $5,000 bond.
The pursuit is still under investigation and further charges are pending. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Iowa State Patrol.
