The man who kicked out the window of a Davison County Sheriff’s vehicle while he was being detained was arrested Sunday night in Gregory County.
Jamie Ray Benedict, 29, of Spearfish, was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a pursuit Sunday night after the Gregory County Sheriff's Office received a tip, according to a press release issued Monday morning by the Mitchell Department of Public Safety. Benedict was arrested and, according to police, found to be in possession of methamphetamine. He is being held at the jail in Winner. No other information about Sunday night’s pursuit and arrest was immediately available. Law enforcement was looking for Benedict an incident last week in which he escaped custody and then allegedly stole two vehicles and then eluded police. He was originally pulled over on a traffic stop at about 9 p.m. Thursday in Mitchell. While his vehicle was being searched, he kicked out the window of the sheriff’s vehicle in a successful attempt to escape. A 2004 GMC Sierra was later reported stolen, and that vehicle was then involved in a pursuit with law enforcement in Parkston, but the vehicle was not recovered until it was found Friday morning in Armour. Benedict is believed to have stolen a second vehicle in Armour, a tan 2005 Ford F350, which was later recovered in Lake Andes. At the time of his initial arrest, 44 grams of methamphetamine, less than 2 ounces of marijuana, a digital scale and various items of drug paraphernalia were found in Benedict’s vehicle, according to police.The man who kicked out the window of a Davison County Sheriff’s vehicle while he was being detained was arrested Sunday night in Gregory County.
