SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho — A man and a woman have been detained following a search for the two that stretched from St. Regis, Mont. to Shoshone County.
Deputies believe the two fled the scene of a suspicious death believed to be an overdose in St. Regis.
According to Idaho State Police (ISP), officers from St. Regis warned ISP officers that a rented 2023 Chevy Tahoe was in the area where the death occurred on Wednesday morning. Police believed the car was heading for Washington state and asked nearby law enforcement to be on the lookout for the car.
The Shoshone County Sheriff's Office located the car on westbound I-90 at approximately 10:20 a.m. on Wednesday. A deputy tried to do a traffic stop, but the car didn't stop and a pursuit started. The deputy ultimately lost the car near Dudley Road and Buckner Road in Shoshone County.
Because the people in the car were potentially armed, the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office help ISP and the Shoshone County Sheriff's Office by offering tracking dogs and additional deputies.
The woman in the car was found and detained at approximately noon and the man was found and arrested about an hour later. Police said the woman is expected to be released.
Residents living near the areas of Latour Creek, Dudley Road and Buckner Road were asked to stay inside and lock their doors until the suspects were caught, but deputies say there is no longer a threat.
Deputies began tracking the suspects in Montana after they reportedly fled the scene of an overdose. The search then expanded to Shoshone and Kootenai counties.
According to a Facebook post, the two suspects were pursued by deputies from Montana and into Kootenai County. Once in Kootenai County, the suspects exited their car and ran away.
