SHAWANO COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) – One person is in custody following deputies from Shawano County seizing over one gram of fentanyl on Tuesday.

According to a Facebook Post, at around 2:20 p.m., Menominee Tribal Police was patrolling the area of Onanekwat Resort near a residence that was suspected of selling illegal drugs.

As the Tribal Police Officer passed the residence, a vehicle backed out of the driveway, nearly striking the officer’s squad car.

The vehicle then left at a high rate of speed on an unnamed logging road. The vehicle was then located a short time after on South Line Road and nearly struck the Tribal Officer again, this time head-on.

The officer then began on a short pursuit before the suspect crossed county lines into Shawano County. The suspect’s vehicle was located at a residence on Pioneer Drive by the Shawano County Sheriff’s Office.
