Young Makes Initial Appearance In Green Lake County Court

The former Waupun police officer who went on a crime spree last August made his initial appearance in Green Lake County Court Monday. Forty-four-year-old Bradley Young of Brandon faces three burglary counts and four more charges in Green Lake County. He allegedly broke into grocery stores in Berlin, Markesan and Waupun last summer. Bond was set at $50,000 cash and he will be back in court on February 25th for a status conference. Young has already been charged in Barron and Burnett County, but it was an attempted break-in at a Green Lake restaurant that launched a manhunt last August. He was a lieutenant and 22 year veteran of the Waupun Police Department when he resigned in the wake of his alleged crimes. A status conference in his Burnett County case is scheduled March 4th and the following day he has a plea hearing in Barron County Court.
