NEW HAMPTON – Sheriffs in Chickasaw and Floyd county are seeking an elusive felon who fled police through a bean field and has help staying at-large.

The Chickasaw county sheriff’s office said today that they are asking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual who is wanted on warrants out of that county. Dustin Dean DeVries, age 34, currently has warrants for first-degree theft (a Class “C” Felony), and a Probation Violation (also a Class “C” Felony). The bond for the Theft-1st charge is $10,000 cash only; there is no bond for the probation violation.

Floyd county sheriff Rick Lynch says DeVries has connections in Floyd County and has “people helping him in eluding law enforcement”

According to Sheriff Lynch, “last weekend in the Roseville area he is suspected (of) taking a Floyd County Deputy on a high speed chase. He drove through a farmer’s corn and bean field and abandoned his vehicle. Charles City and Nora Springs Police, Iowa State Patrol and Worth County Sheriff’s office with K-9 units assisted. Later a neighbor called and said they saw a white SUV stop on the gravel and honked the horn and they heard a door slam shut and the vehicle drove away.”

Any information on the whereabouts of this individual should be called in to local law enforcement.

    How do you escape in a bean field. If officers can find your ass in 7 feet of corn, they can find your ass in 24″ of beans.

      Well if you read more than the first sentence you would see he drove through a corn field too. I don’t imagine a squad car would do so well in a corn field that is muddy as hell from the rain we have been getting.

      That’s funny…and probably true.
