Sheriff Kevin Aistrope reports that, on the morning of April 25, Tabor Police started a pursuit with a dark blue Chevrolet Malibu in Tabor.
Tabor Police pursued the vehicle southbound on HWY 275 by the Fremont-Mills High School when the subject started shooting at the police.
Fremont County K9 unit joined in the pursuit to assist Tabor around 170th Street on Highway 275.
The suspect vehicle then started shooting the K9 Unit patrol vehicle hitting them three times out of approximately 4-5 shots.
Both agencies continued south bound pursuing the vehicle at speeds over 100mph.
The vehicle continued southbound into Sidney continuing at a high rate of speed.
Once inside city limits, deputies and officers slowed down through town and lost sight of the vehicle around Main Street and Clay Street.
The deputies continued to search, finding the vehicle on the Highway 275 bypass southbound off of 290th Avenue.
At this point, the car continued southbound running at speeds of 125mph.
Deputies stayed with the vehicle into Hamburg.
The vehicle continued southbound through Hamburg to the Missouri Line before ramping the car into the river just south of Hamburg.
At this point multiple agencies had responded to deputies call for assistance with shots fired.
These agencies included Mills County K9 Unit, Montgomery County K9, Cass County K9 Unit, Shelby County K9 Unit, Shenandoah K9 Unit, Red Oak Police, Iowa State Patrol, Glenwood Police, and Page County Sheriff.
During the search for the suspects deputies located 28-year-old William Stanfill of Bellevue, Nebr. and, 37-year-old Jaqueline Streich also of Bellevue. Once located both subjects gave up without further incident and were transported to Grape Community Hospital for injuries sustained from crashing into the river.
Once they were released from the hospital, deputies arrested both subjects and transported them to the Fremont County law enforcement center. Both Stanfill and Streich are being held on $1,000,000 cash only bond with charges of attempted murder of a peace officer (two counts), felony assault with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, felony eluding, reckless driving and numerous traffic violations.
This incident stems from previous incidents that occurred in Bellevue. The same subjects were sought by Bellevue Police for multiple drive by shootings and also shooting at law enforcement.
Sheriff Aistrope sends his sincere graditude to the responding agencies.
