Minnesota driver wanted on warrants in two states arrested following pursuit

Two Minnesota men were arrested following a pursuit into Bartholomew County.


Just after 10:30 pm Wednesday, Decatur County Sheriff's Sergeant Rob Goodfellow was working overtime on Operation Pullover, Seat Belt Enforcement detail.  He observed a vehicle registering 77 mph in a 55-mph zone on Indiana State Road 3 at Decatur County Road 450 West. Sergeant Goodfellow initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle. After initial contact with the driver, he asked the driver for his driver's license, at which time the driver fled the traffic stop, headed towards the Columbus area.


The vehicle continued to flee law enforcement, entering Bartholomew County, and traveling through the Hope area. With the assistance of the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office, the Columbus Police Department, and the Greensburg Police Department, tire deflation devices were placed in the area of State Road 7 and US 31. The fleeing vehicle crossed over the tire deflation devices and the vehicle came to a stop.


The driver, later identified as Say Moo of St. Paul, MN, was arrested for fleeing law enforcement, a Level 6 felony, possession of a legend drug, a Level 6 felony, possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony and reckless driving, a Class B misdemeanor. Say Moo was also wanted on two warrants in two different states.

The passenger, Thay Moo, was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony and possession of a legend drug, a Level 6 felony.


Both the driver and the passenger were transported to the Decatur County Detention Center.
