Search Continues For Suspected Shoplifter Who Broke Police Officer’s Arm

Waite Park (Minnesota) police are searching for two shoplifting suspects from Little Falls — one of whom sent a police officer to the emergency room.

Police say officers responded to a report Thursday night of two men shoplifting at a Menards store. When they arrived, an officer spotted one of the suspects, 23-year-old Derek Plante, and tried to handcuff him. There was a struggle, and Plante ended up breaking the officer’s left arm.

Plante got away, and so did the other theft suspect, 20-year-old Dean Drosier. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to call Waite Park Police Department… CBSN Minnesota
