Raymond Wayne Reed, 29, of Brook Park was charged with four felonies and one gross misdemeanor including fleeing from police in a chase that reached over 100 mph. 

According to the criminal complaint filed by the Kanabec County Attorney’s Office, Reed had several outstanding warrants for arrest. At approximately 3 a.m. Oct. 1, a Kanabec County Deputy observed Reed driving a black Impala near the intersection of Jade Street and 290th Ave. Upon being seen by the deputy, Reed accelerated quickly thus beginning a car chase that reached over 100 mph. 

Near the intersection of 290th Ave. and Hwy 65, deputies deployed spike strips. Both Reed and the pursing deputy struck the strips. Reed continued, the car driving on tire rims, while a deputy in a different squad car continued the chase. 

Reed eventually turned onto Harbor Street, then drove into a field where the car became stuck at which point Reed was arrested.

During a search of Reed and the vehicle deputies found methamphetamine, a sawed off shotgun, a pistol and marijuana. Reed has multiple crimes of violence convictions which prevent him from possessing firearms.
