Grant Co. Deputies say they discovered a poaching operation after a car chase Monday evening.

They received a report of possible poaching around 6:00 that evening at 6573 Stumptown Rd.

Deputies found a vehicle matching the description from the complaint a short time later.

A police chase began, reaching speeds of 95 mph. Deputies eventually called off the chase for safety reasons.

A short time later, the suspect vehicle was found in a ditch on Stumptown Rd., after it had apparently lost control.

As deputies approached, the vehicle got free and started to drive toward the squad cars. At the last minute it turned into the ditch to try and get around the squads, but ended up hitting the front driver's side of one of the squad cars.

There was another chase, but deputies once again called it off due to safety concerns.

Follow-up investigation led authorities to 2752 Baker Ford Rd. in the township of Harrison, which is the home of 29-year-old Aaron Gregory.

There deputies found the suspect vehicle, and identified Gregory as the driver. He was arrested.

Deputies also found deer carcasses on the property, and learned there were even more carcasses inside the house.

Authorities found a total of 14 deer carcasses that had been poached.

Gregory was arrested on charges of eluding (felony), hit and run of an occupied vehicle (misdemeanor) and speeding. He also faces multiple DNR violations.

The deputy in the squad car that was hit was not injured.
