Two juveniles from Lad Lake face charges in overnight joyride

Waukesha County Sheriff's Department deputies, officers from the Waukesha Police Department and a county K-9 unit joined forces Wednesday night to track down two juveniles thought to have fled Lad Lake School in Ottawa and taken a car from Wales on a joyride.

Deputies were initially dispatched to search for the boys at about 11:30 p.m., according to a news release from Capt. Donald Vincent of the Sheriff's Department.

During the search, a deputy tried to stop a vehicle that was being driven erratically eastbound on Highway 18. The refused to stop and sped away at speeds in excess of 80 mph. The vehicle also veered into oncoming traffic as it approached the City of Waukesha, the release said. The deputy broke off the chase because of safety concerns.

Officers contacted the owners of the vehicle and learned that the vehicle had been parked at a business in Wales and had been taken without permission.

About 20 minutes after the pursuit was called off, another deputy spotted two boys near St. Paul Avenue and East Moreland Boulevard in Waukesha. The boys ran behind the Metal Tech facility. Deputies and police officers surrounded the area and searched for the boys, with assistant from a K-9 unit, the release said.

One boy gave up after a short time. The second continued to hide, but was eventually tracked down by the police dog and was taken into custody. 

The boys were identified as the missing boys from Lad Lake.

Officers found the stolen vehicle behind a business in downtown Waukesha, still running. 

Both juvenies face numerous charges in connection with the incident.
