Former Waupun Police Officer Sentenced For Car Theft

Former Waupun Police Lieutenant Brad Young has been sentenced to three years of probation for stealing a car in Barron County in August of 2013. A Barron County judge this week also ordered young to pay restitution and court costs. The 45-year-old Brandon man was the subject of a manhunt in August of that year after trying to break into a Green Lake restaurant and stealing a pickup truck. His pursuit led to a crime spree in which he stole several vehicles and broke into residences. He’s suspected of burglaries in multiple counties including Fond du Lac that date back to 2010.  Young resigned from the Waupun Police Department in the wake of his crimes. He served on that department for more than 22 years.
