A western Wisconsin man faces charges of felony escape, car theft and other offenses in a January incident. 

Joshua Robertson is accused of stealing a state trooper's squad car.  Robertson was pulled over for speeding and a police dog led searchers to nearly two pounds of meth.  While the evidence was being bagged, a hand-cuffed Robertson managed to get in the squad car and drive off.  He abandoned the vehicle about eight miles away and escaped on foot.  Robertson was caught a few days later.  His next court appearance is scheduled for March 20th.
