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.
