A 30-year-old Mandan man was arrested on multiple felony charges Thursday after eluding Dickinson police for nearly five hours following an attempted traffic stop, which led to him eventually breaking into a residence and locking himself into the home with a family.

Officers attempted to stop Daniel West, who was driving a blue 2009 Nissan Sentra on the 500 block of Second Avenue Southeast around 8 a.m. The vehicle had been reported stolen from Bismarck on Wednesday, according to a news release. West fled from police for a short distance before abandoning the vehicle on the 100 block of Fifth Street Southeast. He then fled on foot.

Officers conducted an exhaustive search of the area Thursday morning. While West eluding officers on foot, he broke into a garage located on the 500 block of Eighth Avenue Southwest.

The residents were home at the time and confronted West in their garage, causing him to run off. He continued to elude police on foot for some time and attempted to hide in multiple yards on the south side of Dickinson.

Police said West eventually broke into another garage and entered the attached residence located on the 700 block of Fifth Avenue Southwest. That residence was also occupied by the homeowners. Officers were in chase and arrived in the area within seconds.

After seeing police, West locked himself in the residence with the family. The front door was immediately breached by officers as West escaped through a back window.

West was chased down by officers and taken into custody on the 600 block of Fifth Avenue Southwest around 12:50 p.m.

West was arrested and transported to the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center, where he was charged with two counts of burglary, and one count each of terrorizing, possession of stolen property, fleeing in a motor vehicle-all Class C felonies-as well as fleeing on foot, a Class B misdemeanor.

West also had an outstanding no-bond Burleigh County arrest warrant associated with a previous burglary.
