KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WFRV) – The search for a suspect vehicle that allegedly damaged a Kaukauna Police squad car in October has ended.

Kaukauna Police confirmed Friday evening that officers were able to locate the red Dodge Durango involved in the Oct. 27 pursuit.

The suspects involved in the incident were also located.

In October, authorities said officers attempted to stop a red Dodge Durango for having no plates on the vehicle.

An officer followed the vehicle, which eventually drove into the parking lot of the Kaukauna Gun Range. The vehicle then intentionally rammed the front of the pursuing squad car before leaving the parking lot.

Kaukauna Police say the officer was uninjured in the crash but the squad car was left disabled and unable to continue pursuit of the suspect vehicle.

As the suspect vehicle was leaving the scene, a second Kaukauna Police officer responding to the scene observed the suspect vehicle driving toward him. The officer activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the suspect vehicle.

The driver of the suspect vehicle again refused to stop and attempted to elude the officer. The officer pursued the vehicle and reported the vehicle was not obeying traffic signs and was driving in an erratic manner.

The officer pursued the vehicle for about 3 miles before deciding to terminate the pursuit due to the erratic driving of the operator of the Dodge Durango.

No other details are available at this time.
