A few minutes after that call, On Star Services contacted the Sheriff’s Office to report that a vehicle had ran out of gas, near the train tracks, along Hwy. #59 south of Brooks. A Red Lake County deputy located the vehicle parked on the train tracks at an intersection. Dispatch notified CP Rail so they were aware of the situation. The deputy discovered the driver, Cheyenne Durana Jones (28) of Minneapolis, was extremely intoxicated. Further investigation revealed that she was driving a stolen vehicle that had been reported earlier in Lyon County. She also had several outstanding misdemeanor warrants in Hennepin County and was in need of medical attention. The Oklee Ambulance was contacted to respond to the scene. They transported Ms. Jones to the Sanford ER in Thief River Falls. A tow truck also came to the scene to remove the vehicle off of the railroad tracks. Once Ms. Jones was medically cleared and released from the hospital, she was taken to the jail in Crookston and was booked for felony possession of stolen property and gross misdemeanor DWI. She was released from Red Lake County’s custody the following day and Hennepin County was notified so their matters could be dealt with. She will be summonsed to appear in Court in Red Lake Falls at a later date.
