On April 13, 2021, at approximately 1:36 a.m., a Fitchburg police officer observed a black sedan traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on Richardson St. and Mckee Rd. The officer began checking the area where he last saw the sedan traveling. When the officer reached the 5700 block of Wilshire Dr., he observed 3-4 young men walking near two different houses as well as the black sedan. As soon as the men saw the officer, they began running away.
A K9 track was conducted and one subject was located hiding outside of an egress window at a nearby house. This subject, a 15 year old male, was taken into custody. The other subjects have not yet been located. The Fitchburg Police Department is asking residents of the Seminole Ridge and surrounding neighborhoods to check any cameras they may have for signs of suspicious activity during the early morning hours of 4/13/21.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Fitchburg Police at 270-4300 or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014.
