Comments Off on Jaclynn Alexis Hartmann, 20, and Jeremy James Larsen, 23, arrested for Methamphetamine in Sioux Falls

A Sioux Falls man wanted for violating his ex-girlfriend’s protection order tipped off police officers during his arrest about methamphetamine the woman was hiding in her car.

Jeremy James Larsen, 23, was arrested on charges aggravated eluding, violating a protection, reckless driving and running a red light. He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after police found methamphetamine on him.

While being arrested, he told officers that his ex-girlfriend, Jaclynn Alexis Hartmann, 20, also had methamphetamine, police spokesman Sam Clemens said.

Police said officers found meth during a search of her car, and she was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The incident started about 2 p.m. when Larsen called police to report a reckless driver on Minnesota Avenue. The driver, who was pulled over at Sixth Street and Minnesota Avenue, turned out to be Hartmann.

“She told officers that she had a valid protection order against Jeremy and she was driving that way to get away from him because he was following her,” Clemens said.

Larsen drove past while officers were speaking with Hartmann, Clemens said. Larsen refused to stop for officers, who eventually terminated a chase because of speed and dangerous conditions.

“There were a couple of red lights he did not stop for along Minnesota Avenue,” Clemens said.

Later, Larsen called Hartmann. An officer was still with her and answered the phone.

Clemens said the background noise from Larsen’s end matched what the officer was hearing around him. Larsen was spotted watching them from the Kum-N-Go, a block north and was arrested.
