Six charges filed against Maxwell Decker for vehicle thefts, police chase

by

JUNEAU, WI (WTAQ) - A Berlin man is now facing six charges in connection with the alleged theft of multiple vehicles and leading police on a chase last weekend.

A preliminary hearing has been set in Dodge County next Thursday for Maxwell Decker. Decker is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.

Authorities say a sheriff's deputy tried pulling over a vehicle for reckless driving on Highway 175 August 9. The driver didn't pull over, and led police on an 11.5 mile chase. The driver eventually crashed the vehicle, reported stolen from Berlin, in a Dodge County ditch.

Sheriff's officials say the driver was able to run away and steal a second vehicle near the scene of the crash. Deputies later found that vehicle in the Fond du Lac County Town of Oakfield.
