The search has stopped in this cornfield after Minnehaha County authorities were looking for a man who they say burglarized a farmhouse that no one was living in and then ran into a field with a shotgun.
Let's take you back to earlier this morning when the search started.
Crews set up a command post near the intersection of 260th Street and Marion Road near the McCrossan Boys Ranch, which is just northwest of the I-90 / I-29 interchange.
Authorities closed down this area to drivers, they were only letting people who live in this area through.
They are still asking those homeowners to lock their doors.
People can now drive through the area.
Authorities say the owners of this farmhouse happen to drive by it today when the burglary was taking place... and saw the man.
Fortunately the property owners were not home at the time the burglar arrived on the scene.
Police and highway patrol had been searching this area since about 9:30 A.M. this morning for the armed burglar.
Police say the vacant property had already been burglarized a couple times this week. So when the homeowners drove by and saw doors open that shouldn't have been they decided to call police.
Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead said "when we arrived and our officers, there's a gate and a long driveway and when they undid the gate and drove up there, that's when they encountered at least one individual that fled from the officers. Looked like he had been maybe trying to steal a lawn mower, a riding mower, and when he recognized the officers were there, he grabbed his gun and fled into the field."
Police say the reason for the extra resources is for the safety of the officers and the safety of the public.
Milstead said the suspect did not actually point a rifle at deputies and he hasn't used a shotgun in a threatening manner towards officers.
