BEATRICE – Beatrice Police have arrested an 18-year-old Lincoln male following a police pursuit over the weekend, which followed a call reporting a burglary-in-progress.
Dominick Fossberg was arrested for allegedly obstructing a police officer, possession of marijuana and ecstasy.
Lieutenant Mike Oliver says police could not immediately determine whether he was the driver of a car carrying six people, pursued by police. Police had received a description of the vehicle involved in the burglary reported to authorities. No entry was gained to the home, but damage was done to a door. The homeowner was at home, when the attempted break-in occurred. Nothing was taken. Oliver says the pursuit by police covered several blocks.

Five other people in the car scattered after the vehicle was stopped early Saturday morning, and police detained some of them. Oliver says there were four males and two females in the car. The pursuing officer got assistance from two other officers following the stop of the vehicle.
