A surprising look at all the manpower, supplies, and resources used in Thursday's 11 hour armed standoff in rural Cass County. 21 year old Dylan Pederson of Fargo was taken into custody after hiding in this 115 acre cornfield near Argusville. More than 60 people from 8 agencies on the local, county, state, and federal levels helped in the manhunt. 2 helicopters from the Border Patrol and National Guard and a Highway Patrol plane searched for the suspect by air. The SWAT team, a search dog and infrared technology helped bring an end to the situation.

Captain Rick Majerus – Cass County Sheriff’s Department: “Because of the large area that's why it took so many people. We're just lucky it came to this type of conclusion. Obviously nobody got hurt, injured, and we're happy for that.”
