(Beaver Dam) Charges have been filed against those accused of stealing from a Beaver Dam business, fleeing police, and crashing their vehicle in the wrong lane of Highway 151. Destiny Dull of Richland Center and Timothy McEvoy of Baraboo are both facing multiple felony charges including Retail Theft and Fleeing. Joshua Schaaf is facing a felony charge of Fleeing for his alleged role.
It all started when Beaver Dam police were notified that two people were filling garbage cans with various items at a local business on the morning of June 10th. The officer arrived on scene and observed two people matching the suspect’s descriptions leave and approached them. The suspects got in a car where a third individual was behind the wheel and accelerated away.
Authorities shortly lost sight of the vehicle but later located it at a gas station. One of the parties, reportedly identified as Schaaf, was exiting the store when officers arrived. The vehicle drove away and Schaaf was arrested. He reportedly admitted to being behind the wheel when law enforcement first approached them at the business.
Authorities continued to pursue the suspect vehicle as it traveled southbound in the northbound lane of Highway 151. The car lost control just past the Highway DE intersection and crashed. McEvoy was allegedly identified as the driver at that time while Dull was the passenger. According to the criminal complaint, Dull said she was driving when the vehicle first left the gas station but put it on cruise control going 90 miles-per-hour on the highway to switch seats with McEvoy. The total dollar among of the items taken from the business was roughly $3,200.
If convicted, the 23-year-old Dull faces over 17 years in prison while the 28-year-old McEvoy faces over 16. Initial appearances are scheduled for September 7th.
