Area law enforcement partner for operation

(KAIR)--The Doniphan County Sheriff's Office was one of several agencies that assisted in a Thursday night, early Friday morning operation, focused on drivers willing to flee from law enforcement.

KQ2-TV reports the operation was led by Saint Joseph Police, who made five arrests during the time period.

Police Captain Jeff Wilson told the TV station the operation was a success following weeks of planning and coordination.

The activity drew concern on social media, with questions Thursday night into Friday raised about the heavy police activity, including helicopters flying overhead, in the Saint Joseph area.

Wilson confirmed that vehicles that fled from officers “were tracked by air assets and there were arrests made.”

Along with Saint Joseph Police and Doniphan County Deputies, other agencies involved in the operation included the Buchanan County Sheriff's Department, the Buchanan County Drug Strike Force, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the Andrew County Sheriff's Department.
