(Aurora, Ind.) - Two men wanted for fleeing police in Aurora have been caught.
Dennis Seabolt, 40, was at the wheel of a car which Aurora Police attempted to pull over on U.S. 50 the morning of November 26. The officer recognized the occupants of the vehicle knowing that they had warrants for felony probation violations.
Seabolt wasn’t going to be taken into custody so easily. He sped off heading East on the highway at nearly 90 MPH, at times going into the opposite lane of traffic.
Seabolt and his passenger, brother Jason Seabolt, 33, later ditched the vehicle on Buena Vista Drive and escaped on foot. After obtaining a search warrant, police located marijuana and partially burned joint inside the car.
Both men were arrested on warrants Wednesday evening. They are held in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center awaiting their initial hearings on new charges of Resisting Law Enforcement by Fleeing with a Vehicle (Class D felony) and Possession of Marijuana with a Previous Conviction (Class D felony).
This episode isn't the first drug-related crime for the Seabolt family of Aurora. Other members of the clan were arrested during an Indiana State Police raid of the Seabolt home on Stoney Lonesome Road in October.
