WORTHINGTON — Police were involved in a traffic stop where 2 individuals fled on foot near Clary Street and McMillan Street on Tuesday, May 10 at approximately 12:31.

Two men fled officers in a white U-Haul truck according to a press release from Worthington Police Department. Officers terminated their pursuit of the vehicle shortly after, due to concerns about public safety.

The U-Haul truck was later located unoccupied near Worthington Senior High School. The WPD recommended the school be placed into lockdown, though students were later released at the completion of the school day without incident.

Officers searched the area and took one male into custody. One individual is still at large and is described as a white male wearing a white t-shirt, light-colored baseball hat, and tattoos on his left arm.

If anyone has any information regarding this individual, contact the Law Enforcement Center at 507-295-5400.
