(Beaver Dam) Three teenagers in a stolen vehicle were apprehended in Dodge County Friday night after running from authorities. Beaver Dam Police were dispatched to the 1500 block of North Spring Street around 10:15pm following reports of a gas drive off and retail theft. The suspect vehicle was found to be reported stolen through the Grand Chute Police Department.
The vehicle was later located in Beaver Dam, and the driver fled from police vehicles that had attempted a traffic stop. Beaver Dam officers, and Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies, deployed tire deflation devices in Beaver Dam, in the town of Oak Grove, and again in the city of Juneau. Each time the driver evaded the devices.
The pursuit continued into Juneau, where the vehicle left the roadway, striking two parked vehicles and the front porch of a residence. The three occupants then fled on foot.
The suspect driver, an 18-year-old Oshkosh man, was attempting to scale a fence when he was apprehended by Beaver Dam K9 Yeti. The driver, who had warrants through the Wisconsin Department of Community Corrections, was transported to the Dodge County Jail on charges of Fleeing or Eluding an Officer, Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent, Resisting an Officer, and Defrauding a Gas Station.
A short time later, a 17-year-old Fond du Lac woman was located and arrested by Dodge County Sheriff’s Deputies. She was transported to the Dodge County Jail with charges of Retail Theft and Resisting an Officer. A 16-year-old juvenile was also taken into custody.
The Beaver Dam Police Department was assisted by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, the Juneau Police Department, the Wisconsin State Patrol, and Juneau EMS.
