BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (WCCO) — A Wisconsin sheriff said a man who made his career catching bad guys is now one himself.

The Barron County Sheriff’s office said Waupun officer Brad Young broke into a Green Lake restaurant yesterday, and drove off in a stolen car.

Deputies lost him after he ran into a cornfield near Rice Lake.

Two hours later, a pickup truck was reported stolen in that area.

The sheriff’s office said they’re not sure if Young has a gun or another weapon on him.

The public is asked to call 911 if you see young.
