Olmsted sheriff asks for public’s help identifying driver in another wet concrete case

(ABC 6 News) – The sheriff’s office of Olmsted County is asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver and passengers of another vehicle that went through wet concrete in the Rochester area.

At about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, a construction team reported damage to newly laid pavement at County Road 105 and Valley High Road in Kalmar Township.

A white man in a black Volkswagen Passat four-door sedan drove across the pavement on the north side of Valley High Road – making it across the wet concrete, but causing about $50,000 in damages.

Capt. James Schueller with the sheriff’s office said given the amount of construction signage in the area, it is reasonable to assume the driver was aware of the work, but intentionally drove through the area to avoid a detour.

A supervisor at the site saw the man, an Asian woman in the front seat, and a teenager in the back of the car.

The sheriff’s office has identified around 38 similar vehicles in the area, Schueller said but would appreciate the public’s help in identifying a particular owner/driver, if the description of the passengers is familiar to anyone.
