PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pierre man is jailed after police say he stole a pickup truck full of newspapers and led officers on a high-speed chase west of Fort Pierre.

Pierre Police Chief Jason Jones says the newspaper carrier had just begun delivering 246 papers shortly before 2:30 a.m. Monday when his truck was stolen.

A Stanley County sheriff’s deputy spotted the truck and tried to stop it, and a chase ensued. It ended when the driver lost control and the truck rolled.

The 19-year-old driver was arrested on several charges including drunken driving and grand theft.

The paper carrier was able to finish his routes with help from another Capital Journal employee.
