Jeremy Werneburg listens to testimony in his attempted murder trial in 2016.

The 41-year-old Carroll man who eluded police officers last week when they tried to arrested him for a drug-related federal warrant was arrested Monday night in Manning.

A Carroll officer stopped Jeremy Werneburg in a car about 5:25 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Ninth and Crawford streets and attempted to arrest him, but Werneburg fled west out of town on paved and gravel roads at speeds of more than 100 mph.

Officers had to abandon the chase because of gravel dust and tall corn that obscured their vision.

About 9 p.m. on Monday, the Manning police department received a tip that Werneburg was seen at theĀ Cobblestone Inn and Suites.

"Werneburg was later apprehended without incident by local law enforcement," Police Chief Sam Hansen said.

Deputies from several sheriff's offices and a state patrolman assisted in the arrest. Werneburg has an extensive history of violence and drug abuse, according to court records, and has resisted arrest before. An officer had to subdue him with a stun gun in 2016 in Fort Dodge when he was wanted for attempted murder.

The details of his pending federal charges were not immediately available.
