Search Underway For Escaped Dodge County Jail Inmate


10/13/17 – A stolen vehicle has been linked to an inmate who escaped from the Dodge County Jail. Dylan Joseph Farber fled at approximately 2am Friday morning. The 30-year-old Farber, whose last known address was in the city of Fox Lake, was being held at the jail on a $2000 cash bond on a felony charge of Fleeing and Eluding a Law Enforcement Officer, and was also being held for open charges out of Dane and Green Lake counties. He was arrested after a high-speed chase July seventh that started in Dodge County. In that incident, officers say he drove into Waukesha County on Highway 67 at speeds of up to 90 miles-an-hour — and he allegedly stole a Taser stun gun from the town of Oconomowoc’s police chief and used it on another officer. Others wrestled the suspect to the ground, and the stunned officer was not seriously hurt. Farber was last seen on foot in the city of Juneau wearing khaki pants, a green shirt and orange croc-type shoes. Sheriff’s deputies, with the assistance of Beaver Dam Police Department and their K9 unit, responded and conducted an unsuccessful search of the area. The sheriff’s office reported late this morning that Farber is likely the culprit behind the report of a stolen vehicle in the city of Juneau that occurred overnight. Investigators currently believe with a high degree of probability the vehicle was stolen by Farber sometime after 2am.  The stolen vehicle is a 1999 GM Suburban, tan in color with Wisconsin license plate number 518ZXT. If members of the public see this vehicle and know its current location, Sheriff Dale Schmidt says do not approach or attempt to make contact, and please call 911 immediately. Schmidt says Farber should be considered dangerous. Anyone with information that is not current please contact the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office at (920) 386-3726.
