A Fargo man was arrested early this (Fri) morning after trying to steal two vehicles from a rural Thompson residence.

The Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office says it got a report around 1 AM of a burglary in progress. The suspect tried to steal two vehicles from a garage, but the vehicles got stuck in the driveway, and the suspect fled on foot.

One vehicle was still running when officers arrived. Deputies located the suspect’s vehicle stuck in a ditch about a quarter-mile away.

Deputies later found the suspect, 26-year-old Cody Foster, in Grand Forks, arresting him on suspicion of burglary, unlawful entry and concealment in a motor vehicle, and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

Foster was taken to Grand Forks County Correctional Center.
