Update On Crime Waupun Police Officer Allegedly Committed
Green Lake County Sheriff’s officials say the incident that sparked a manhunt for a Waupun Police Officer involved a break-in at a Green Lake restaurant. An alarm system early Monday morning alerted owners of Walkers Kollerville Restaurant and they called the Sheriff’s Office. A deputy spotted 43-year-old Brad Young outside the restaurant running into a cornfield. He was dressed all in camouflage. After daylight his vehicle was found in a field entrance and a search warrant was obtained to search it. A separate search warrant was obtained for Young’s home in Brandon. Evidence was found in the vehicle. Monday afternoon at 2:55 p.m. a Green Lake resident living about two miles northwest of the burglary reported his 1985 Toyota extended cab truck stolen. It was later located in Barron County and a high speed chase ended with Young crashing the truck. He fled into a wooded area which was the subject of a search Monday night.
