The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office reports that on 11-5-2020, their office was contacted by the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office and advised to be on the lookout for a Blue Dodge Durango occupied with a male and a female subject. Stearns County advised that the male suspect had multiple warrants and was known to frequent the southwest portion of Morrison County. 


At approximately 4:06 pm, a Morrison County Sergeant located the vehicle on 90th Avenue and 60th Street, just north of Elmdale, MN in Swan River Township. The Morrison County Sergeant attempted to stop the vehicle and the suspect fled, driving through fields and eventually getting stuck in a swamp south of 95th Street and west of Great River Road, in Swan River Township. The two occupants then fled on foot. The Sheriff’s Office along with several other agencies secured a perimeter while drones and two K-9 teams searched the area. After a five-hour search of the area the subjects were not located.


On 11-6-2020 at approximately 8:40 am, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office located two subjects walking along Great River Road, south of 95th Street, wrapped in blankets. When approached by deputies, the male subject took off running and was immediately apprehended along with the female subject. It has been confirmed these are the two subjects that fled from deputies the night before. 


According to the Sheriff’s Office, 26-year-old Timothy Haberman of St. Cloud, MN and 26-year-old Cathleen Letson of St. Cloud, MN were taken into custody. Haberman is being held in Stearns County Jail pending formal charges. Letson was interviewed at the scene and information was passed onto Stearns County Investigators.


The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office, Little Falls Police Department, Motley Police Department, Royalton Police Department, Rice Police Department, Morrison County Public Works Department, Minnesota DNR and Mayo Clinic Ambulance.


An emergency alert was sent to residents within the area of where the suspect vehicle was located. The alert advised residents to shelter in place due to the nature of the incident. The alert reached 256 residents and/or businesses in the area.  Morrison County encourages all citizens to sign up so they can receive important public safety information.  County residents can sign up for the alerts using the county’s opt-in portal on the Morrison County website. Go to and click on the ‘Residents’ tab at the top of page.

Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen would like to thank everyone who assisted at the scene, to include multiple neighbors in the area who provided equipment and other resources.
