Madison Police Officers responded to the 4700 block of E Washington Ave reference a stolen auto with a person with disabilities inside. The suspect entered the vehicle when the caregiver went inside to get food leaving the person with disabilities inside the car still with the engine running. After the caregiver returned, the car and person with disabilities was gone. The Madison Police Department and local law enforcement partners rapidly deployed an extensive amount of resources to look for the endangered person and stolen auto. Approximately, 45 minutes later, the stolen auto was located by the Village of Shorewood Hills Police Chief on University Ave where it was followed waiting for backup. Ultimately, the stolen auto pulled into the UW-Emergency Room entrance area where the suspect was taken into custody.

Thankfully, the victim persuaded the suspect to go to the hospital.
