Sheriff Danny Hickman reports that Boone County Deputy Sgt. Richard Pemberton on Jan. 29, at approximately 12:01 a.m. executed a traffic stop on Dubuque Road in the Omaha area on a silver Toyota Solaris.
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Keith Roch, age 22, fled from Pemberton at the attempted traffic stop and traveled west on Dubuque Road and then to Cottonwood Road and Dubuque Road intersection and then continued south on Cottonwood. Sgt. Pemberton had called for assistance and Deputies in pursuit lost sight of vehicle on Cottonwood but found it again at the intersection of Hopewell and Mill Hollow Road. The driver again fled from Deputies and traveled west on Hopewell Road.
Deputy Dearing deployed spike strips at the intersection of Hopewell and Crain Court which ended the chase. The driver, Roch and front seat passenger in the vehicle fled on foot leaving two females in the vehicle. Deputy Baethke took chase after Roch and caught him after a brief chase.
