[ARCHIVED] West Fargo Police Department responds to overnight pursuit


At approximately 11:25 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2022, the West Fargo Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation near the 800 block of 40th Avenue E.

Officers identified Shawn Galusha, a 48-year old male from Williston, North Dakota, as the driver. Officers initially attempted to stop the vehicle as it fled westbound into Cass County. The Cass County Sheriff’s Office deployed vehicle spikes, bringing the vehicle to a stop on a dead-end gravel road.

Galusha fled from the suspect vehicle on foot and hid in a nearby field. The West Fargo Police Department deployed a drone to locate Galusha in the field. The drone team was able to locate Galusha in the unharvested field using thermal imaging technology. Galusha is facing several charges including felony fleeing, misdemeanor driving under suspension, and an arrest warrant for a parole violation. Additional charges are possible.
