(Primghar)-- Authorities have made an arrest in connection with a high speed pursuit that took place November 23rd.

The O'Brien County Sheriff's Office says it started when a Sanborn police officer conducted a traffic stop in the parking lot at the Casey's General Store in Sanborn.

The driver of the suspect vehicle sped off, leading officers on a pursuit that went through O'Brien county and a portion of Clay county, including the cities of Sheldon, Sanborn and Hartley. Officers terminated the pursuit due to the speed and public safety concerns.

On Wednesday of this week, the driver of the vehicle, Saverio Marino, was arrested without incident at a residence in Paullina. Marino was arrested on warrants charging him with eluding, reckless driving, interference with official acts, driving while revoked, speeding, and four stop sign violations. Bond was set at $4,400 cash or surety.

Marino was also arrested on three other O'Brien county warrants stemming from two other incidents where Marino allegedly attempted to elude police. Those incidents involved a stolen motorcycle, drug and firearm violations. Bond on those charges was set at $24,100 cash.

Authorities say the investigation continues and that more charges are expected.

Agencies involved in the November 23rd pursuit, in addition to the Sanborn Police Department, included the O'Brien County Sheriff's Office, the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the Iowa State Patrol, and the Paullina, Sheldon and Hartley Police Departments.
