Escapee Search


Authorities in Barron County need your help in finding an Eau Claire man who broke out of a squad car last night.

Sheriff Tom Ritchie says 32-year old Chad Rollins was arrested last night in Turtle Lake for a felony probation warrant and possible abduction charges in Eau Claire.

While the squad car was moving, Rollins kicked out the rear passenger window and escaped.

Ritchie says they later received a report of a stolen 1991 black Chevy Beretta and believes Rollins may be traveling in it.

Rollins is white male with dark brown hair and a scruffy beard, 5 foot 10 and 180 pounds.
