Police are searching for two male suspects who led them on a high-speed pursuit Wednesday night after an attempted traffic stop on Long Drive near the high school.

At around 8:18 pm, an officer observed a dark-colored vehicle driving in an “aggressive manner”, and saw that the vehicle's registration matched one that had been put out as an alert by police earlier yesterday. Sheridan Police Lt. Chris Dahmke explains.

Dahmke says Sheriffs deputies assisted police in an extensive search with canines from both departments, but the subjects were not apprehended.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of an Edwin Badgett, age 19 of Sheridan, who is wanted on a Circuit Court warrant for Sexual Assault of a Minor in the 2nd degree can call the police department at 672-2413.
