Two Arrested in CR After Chase

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Two people who were involved in a chase on August 9 were again involved in a chase on Wednesday in eastern Iowa.

An officer tried to make a traffic stop on a pickup at 33rd Avenue and 6th Street SW at 1:43 a.m. when they realized the vehicle had license plates that didn't match the truck.

The vehicle, driven by 35-year-old Kody Harris of Vinton, didn't stop but instead sped off.

Harris kept driving the truck but slowed down when there was a "Road Closed Ahead" sign. He then drove through the road closure and construction near Walford Road and 6th Street.

When the truck crashed into construction vehicles, Harris and 37-year-old April Baldwin from Cedar Rapids got out and began to run.

Officers arrived at the scene and deployed a K9. Together they were able to arrest the suspects.

Harris was arrested for Theft-2nd Degree, Inference with Official Acts, Felony Eluding, Failure to Provide Proof of Financial Liability, Fraudulent Use of Registration, Speeding – 2 counts (80 mph in 35 mph zone at 6th Street and 58th Avenue SW) and (90 mph in 45 mph zone in the 8000 block of 6th Street SW), Failure to Obey Traffic Control Device (US 30/NW Ramp and 6th Street SW stop light) and (Wright Brothers Boulevard and 6th Street SW). He also had outstanding warrants from the United States Marshals Service and Vinton Police Department. One of the warrants was for Probation Violation-Amphetamine.

Baldwin was arrested and had a warrant for Revocation of Probation on Forgery charges.

Harris was in possession and operating a stolen pickup that was from Burlington.
