Two Suspects Arrested after Fleeing From Police
Two St. Cloud residents were arrested after running away from Waite Park police Saturday afternoon. 
 
Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud says officers noticed a traffic violation at the intersection of 10th Ave South and 1st St South in the city of Waite Park. After ignoring the attempt of police to stop, the vehicle continued to travel north bound on 10th Avenue and then east on County Road 75 located on Division Street.
 
Dwight Preston Steele Junior of Kimball, who was driving the vehicle, and his passenger Jeasea Arianna Skutt of Princeton drove to the intersection of 2nd Avenue South and 2nd Street where they threw contraband out of the vehicle. Bentrud says they finally stopped in the 4100 block of 2nd Street South in the city of St. Cloud, but drove away from officers at a high speed.
 
The vehicle then continued to the Thiellman Court area of St. Cloud before going east bound on 2nd Street South and southbound Roosevelt Road. They eventually drove into the garage of a house at the 2600 block of Atwood Drive and closed the door. Bentrud says officers then closed off the area and called the St. Cloud Police for further assistance. After they arrived they were able to arrest Steele on charges of fleeing from police. He also had a felony warrant for running away from Wright County. Arianna Skutt was arrested on a felony narcotics warrant out of Sherburne County. 
 
Bentrud says officers found narcotics and paraphernalia among the items the suspects threw away while fleeing from Waite Park Police.

Stearns County Environmental Services Warns Of Freezing Septic Systems

Due to the cold weather and lack of snow some residents have found problems with their septic systems. Environmental Health Division Supervisor Hank Schreifels for Stearns County Environmental Services says this is due to individual sewage treatment systems freezing.

Stearns County Environmental Services suggests calling an onsite professional to help combat frozen septic systems.  They note that the pumpers and installers used have steamers and high-pressure jetters to unfreeze system piping.

Stearns County Environmental Services also offers a number of tips to help prevent sceptic systems from freezing in the future that include:

  • Stop mowing the grass over a drain field in early fall in order to let the grass grow stronger to trap more snow
  •  Don’t add antifreeze to the system.
  • Making sure all risers, inspection pipes and manholes have tight covers.

You can see the complete list of tips here.
