The Brookings Sheriff’s Office and South Dakota Highway Patrol work together to recover a stolen vehicle.
It happened yesterday morning shortly before 9am. Units responded to a single vehicle accident at the intersection of 205th Street and 468th avenue but found no one at the scene. Officers determined the vehicle had been stolen from Sioux Falls. Law enforcement deployed K9 units and a drone to search the area and arrested 37-year old Tyler Addy of Sioux Falls and 31-year old Amanda Silas of Sioux Falls. The two had been hiding in drainage ditch and shelter belt. Two other suspects are also believed to have been involved and are still being sought.
Addy was already on probation and is now also charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Hit and Run resulting in Injury, Hit and Run resulting in Property Damage, Obstruction, and False Impersonation. Silas is charged with obstruction.
The Sheriff’s Office says residents in the area were helpful in providing tips and observations that helped officers locate the two suspects.
