USH 12 WB / Whitney Way


At approximately 3:50pm, MPD responded to a rollover crash on westbound US 12 between Midvale and Whitney Way.  A stolen vehicle travelling recklessly sideswiped another vehicle causing severe damage.  The stolen vehicle then flipped and landed on its roof.  Witnesses reported that six occupants fled from the stolen vehicle into the Odana Hills Golf Course and surrounding neighborhoods.  Subsequently numerous people called 911 reporting the suspect's locations, suspect's descriptions, and the suspects were trying to break into nearby garages/vehicles.  Officers are able to establish containment on the area and rapidly respond to the suspect's locations.  Ultimately five of the six suspects that fled from the vehicle were apprehended within a short period of time.  Further efforts to locate the sixth suspect were exhausted.  Traffic was impacted on westbound US 12 at the scene of the crash and Seminole Hwy/Manitou Way – which is where the farthest apprehension occurred.  Several of the suspects resisted arrest.  A K9 from the Middleton Police Department assisted with this incident.
Inside the stolen vehicle, three handguns were seized – one handgun was stolen and had a high capacity drum-magazine.  The stolen vehicle was taken on a different date, during a residential burglary in the City of Middleton.  All of the arrested suspects are either out on bail and violating conditions of bail, on active probation/parole status, or have active warrants.  Many have numerous prior offenses for: Stolen Auto (Operate Motor Vehicle Without Owner Consent) and had pending charges with MPD for prior separate OMVWOC incidents. One of the suspects was in possession of cocaine at the time of arrest.  All five suspects were booked into the Dane County Jail, following medical evaluations due to the nature of the crash.  No other persons were significantly injured as a result of the crash.
