VESPER, Wis. (WSAU) -- A wanted man is on the loose in the Vesper area.
Wood County Sheriff’s Department officials say they received an anonymous tip that 38-year-old Eric T. Hall was at a Village of Vesper residence Monday night. An arrest warrant has been issued for probation violations.
Deputies tried to apprehend Hall, but were unable to arrest him as a friend lied to police as he escaped the house. Hall then stole a 2004 GMC Sierra K1500 pickup to get away.
Deputies say they didn’t see any weapons, but Hall should be considered armed and dangerous, and willing to do anything to avoid capture. Anyone that sees the truck, or knows where Hall is should contact law enforcement immediately. Deputies say nobody should approach Hall or try to apprehend him except officers.
