Two arrested after deliberately driving into garages in Dunn County


Dunn County (WQOW) - Two people were arrested, after the sheriff says they drove their car deliberately into garages in Dunn County.

The names of the juvenile and the adult have not been released yet. Sheriff Dennis Smith says someone called authorities Saturday night around 11:00, saying a driver had deliberately smashed a car into their garage door and then drove off. The sheriff's department was on the lookout for the car, when he says it happened again at a different house. A deputy was able to locate the car while authorities believe the two were in the process of stealing a vehicle. A chase ensued, and deputies used a tactical maneuver to stop the car. The two were arrested.

More information is expected to be released Monday.
