Colt Eugene Allery

Deputy Sheriff Colt Allery was shot and killed following a vehicle pursuit of a stolen vehicle that ended in the area of 89th Street and BIA Road 7 near Belcourt, North Dakota.

Deputies and an officer from the Rolla Police Department located the vehicle after being alerted to its location by a remote monitoring company. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and led officers on a pursuit until the car was remotely disabled on a gravel road by the monitoring company. As the vehicle came to a stop the occupant engaged the officers in a shootout in which he and Deputy Allery were both killed.

Deputy Allery had served with the Rolette County Sheriff's Office for three months and had served in law enforcement for five years. He had previously served with the Rolla Police Department, Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians Tribal Police Department, and as a corrections officer with the Rolette County Sheriff's Office.

Colt...Where to start brother? We first met in life at age 5, and we were best friends since. Each time I saw you, I felt like we were still those 5 year old kids playing cops and robbers. Then we started working together in the LE field, and the bond grew stronger there. It's been a few years since you've passed and I still miss you just the same. We will always be brothers and someday we will be reunited. I have soo many memories that I will cherish forever. As always, love you and watch over us.
--Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called the Children of God

Thank you for being a part of my life my friend
