Dickinson Police arrested a South Dakota man Wednesday evening after being called to respond to reports of a suspicious man with possible stolen property outside of an apartment complex near the 1500 block of 10th Avenue West.
Nathaniel Johnson, of Sioux Falls, attempted to flee on foot when officers arrived but was caught a block away after officers released their K-9 dog.
