Page County law enforcement offices were involved in two, different high-speed pursuits on Friday, Oct. 4.
According to the Page County Sheriff’s Office, they were notified of a pursuit within the city limits of Clarinda at about 9 p.m. involving the Clarinda Police Department. Deputies from the Page County Sheriff’s Office assisted. The pursuit began during a traffic infraction and continued north from Clarinda on Redwood Avenue and through the town of Hepburn. The pursuit then went east to U.S. Highway 71 where deputies took over the pursuit from Clarinda police officers. The pursuit went north on U.S. Highway 71 into Villisca where the vehicle was stopped at the Casey’s parking lot.
Justin Allen Williams, 40, of Clarinda was the driver of the vehicle. Elisha Marie Mischke, 38, of Jefferson was a passenger in the vehicle. They were the only two occupants of the vehicle.
Williams has multiple charges of possession and traffic violations. Williams was transported to the Page County Jail where he is being held on $8,000 cash only bond.
Mischke has multiple possession charges and warrants from two other counties. She is being held in the Page County Jail on $2,000 bond.
At about 8:22 a.m. the Page County Sheriff’s Office attempted to make a traffic stop on a green 2006 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on U.S. Highway 71 near Shambaugh. When the deputy turned around on the motorcycle, the motorcycle increased speed and a pursuit began to the Missouri state line at Braddyville on U.S. Highway 71.
The deputy saw the motorcycle smoking and noticed that once into Missouri, the motorcycle slowed considerably and the smoke was increasing. The deputy discontinued pursuit into Missouri, but Page County 911 dispatch had notified Nodaway County, Missouri Sheriff’s Office. The motorcycle continued to smoke and the deputy noticed a bag on the side of the motorcycle behind the driver was on fire. The driver pulled to the side of the road.
Once the fire was out, personnel from the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri Highway Patrol arrived. A check of the driver showed a revoked driver’s license. Jeffery Dean Robinson Jr., 26, of El Dorado Springs, Missouri, was arrested by the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office for driving under suspension.
The Page County Sheriff’s Office issued citations to Robinson for no driver’s license, driving 116 mph in a 55 mph zone and multiple traffic violations.
