Police arrest suspect in New Lisbon burglary, vehicle chase

NEW LISBON, Wis. — New Lison police arrested a man who they said broke into an auto dealership before leading police on a chase.

Officers were sent to Rudig-Jensen Auto just after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday for an active burglary alarm. The suspect, who is described as a white man about 5’10” tall, allegedly drove away from the dealership in a white Ram 1500 truck pulling a trailer when police arrived.

Police said he refused to pull over, and led officers on a chase along I-90/94 before crashing near milepost #60.6 westbound. He then ran from the scene.

Officers from other law enforcement agencies were called in to help search for the suspect. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, police said he was apprehended.
