MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Police in South Dakota are looking for a man who escaped from a Davison County sheriff’s vehicle while he was handcuffed.

Authorities say 29-year-old Jamie Benedict kicked out a window and fled after he was arrested during a traffic stop in Mitchell on Thursday night. Shortly after he escaped, police received a report of a stolen pickup in the area. The pickup was found in Armour on Friday morning.

Police say the traffic stop yielded 44 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. A passenger in Benedict’s car, 29-year-old Tianna Allman, of Rapid City, is charged with several counts, including possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
