The Calumet County Sheriff’s Office and New Holstein Police Department have identified several suspects for their involvement in vandalism, theft, and possessing drugs in the city of New Holstein on the evening of Tuesday, April 6.
The investigation started that evening when officers noticed vandalism that occurred to a building in Civic Park and immediately began to investigate. A theft also occurred from a local business and the water fountain was ripped off the wall at the concession stand at the High School.
Officers and deputies worked together throughout the night and into the early morning to locate the suspects. A 17-year-old was located on the evening of April 6, and a 14-year-old runaway was located the morning of Wednesday, April 7. Shortly thereafter, a 16-year-old runaway was located on the High School property and was detained by an officer. All three suspects are from the Fox Valley and are facing charges of Obstructing an Officer and Damage to Property.
While looking for the above suspects, officers and deputies also arrested a 17-year-old Kiel resident and an 18-year-old New Holstein resident for possessing various forms of THC and drug paraphernalia.
At times throughout the night, Kiel police officers also assisted in the search.
“This was another great example of agencies working together to quickly identify and locate all of the suspects involved,” said Lt. Eric Voland of the Calumet County Sheriff’s Office.
