Authorities in western North Dakota are searching for a man after he fled Dickinson Police during an arrest Monday night.

Jeremy Mellmer, 31, is considered armed and dangerous, the Dickinson Police Department said Tuesday in a Facebook post. His flight from custody resulted in a residential Dickinson neighborhood being blocked off for several hours late Monday night as police searched a home where he was thought to be.


At about 7 p.m. Monday, police arrested three Dickinson residents on the 900 block of Eighth Street East on multiple charges stemming from recent burglaries throughout the city and area. Police found stolen property associated with a number of burglaries throughout the Dickinson area, according to a report from Det. Sgt. Kylan Klauzer.


Brittany Bruntmyer, Jimmy Monday and James Gannon all of Dickinson, were arrested during the operation.


However, Mellmer escaped custody and was believed to be hiding in a residence on the 900 block of Eighth Street East, which authorities were told contained a number of firearms. Officers blocked off the street and the Southwest Tactical Team assisted officers in searching and securing the residence. Police later determined Mellmer had fled the residence prior to them being able to secure the perimeter.

He has multiple outstanding felony and misdemeanor warrants. Anyone with information concerning his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 701-456-7759.
