WORTHINGTON — Three individuals involved in a high-speed pursuit that began near Worthington last week are facing multiple felony criminal charges in Nobles County District Court.

Law enforcement allegedly discovered methamphetamine, hypodermic needles, a gun and a loaded magazine in the vehicle after driver Brandon Boone took multiple police agencies on a Jan. 25 high speed chase that exceeded 100 miles per hour throughout Nobles and Jackson counties.

Boone, 44, of Des Moines, Iowa and his passengers, Jeffrey Brown, 29, of Des Moines, and Andrew Bjorkstrand, 32, of St. Paul are facing first-degree possession of 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and first-degree possession of 25 grams of more of methamphetamine and a firearm, both felonies.

Boone faces additional charges: fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and possession of ammunition/any firearm after being convicted for a crime of violence, both felonies.

According to the criminal complaint, a Worthington police officer attempted to stop Boone’s vehicle last Thursday afternoon as it was traveling without its headlights in foggy conditions on Interstate 90 near Worthington.

Boone instead took the Exit 45 ramp and went through the Minnesota 60 roundabouts at a high rate of speed before turning east on Nobles County 35.

The vehicle — which traveled approximately 21 miles on both gravel and tar roads — failed to slow or stop at intersections or stop signs, the complaint continues.

The officer had observed one of the vehicle’s occupants with their hand outside the window at least once throughout the pursuit. This led the officer to believe they were attempting to dispose of incriminating evidence.

The pursuit ended near Minnesota 86 south of Lakefield. Surrounded by law enforcement with stop sticks set up in the roadway, Boone turned into a ditch and immediately became mired in deep snow. No one was injured during the pursuit.

Officers immediately observed a needle cap, hypodermic needle and crystallized meth in the driver’s door handle.

A loaded handgun magazine under the driver’s seat and a Springfield XD .40 caliber handgun were allegedly discovered after the vehicle was towed and secured at the Prairie Justice Center in Worthington, the complaint states. The .40-caliber handgun was hidden underneath a jacket and appeared accessible to all vehicle occupants, the complaint continues.

Meth was allegedly discovered throughout the vehicle and in an opened 20-ounce water bottle. According to the complaint, the water bottle with methamphetamine weighed 497 grams.

In a post-arrest interview, Boone admitted to law enforcement to recently using meth and cocaine. A blood sample was collected and mailed to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in St. Paul to be tested.

A review of Boone’s record indicates a 2004 possession of controlled substance — third or subsequent offense conviction — in Iowa. He was also convicted in 2014 of felon in possession of a firearm.

If convicted of one of the possession charges, the maximum sentence each of the three men could face is 30 years imprisonment, a $1 million fine or both.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Boone and Brown were no longer in custody at the Nobles County Jail. Boone’s bail had been set at $250,000 with conditions or $500,000 without. Brown’s was set at $50,000 with conditions or $100,000 without.

Bjorkstrand remained in Nobles County custody Tuesday afternoon. His bail was set at $100,000 with conditions or $200,000 without.

The trio’s initial appearance is scheduled for Feb. 6 in Nobles County District Court.
