Officer Reinemann investigated a crash at the busy intersection of Hwy A and Hwy 28.  Though outside the Village limits, deputies were tied up on other matters, so the Sheriff’s Department requested mutual aid.

Officer Reinemann was dispatched to Deer Trace in an attempt to locate a person wanted for an incident in the City of Sheboygan. The subject was ultimately located and turned over to Sheboygan PD Officers.

Officer Sass was dispatched to assist Sheboygan PD officers at a church on St. Clair Avenue where a burglary in progress was discovered and a suspect was being detained. Officer Sass assisted in searching the building for more suspects.

Officer Reinemann stopped a moped operator for not having license plates. The driver was involved in a prior incident that a deputy was investigating. The driver was turned over to the deputy investigating the matter.

Officer Gross and Officer Schoch responded to the newly opened Home Goods store at Deer Trace for a 911 hang up call. There was no emergency. There are apparent problems with the new phone system.

Officer Sass stopped a vehicle for speeding. The driver had a suspended license, and the driver was also wanted out of the State of Minnesota for a felony probation violation – and also wanted on two local Sheboygan County arrest warrants. The driver was cited for the suspended and placed in jail on the outstanding warrants.

Officer Reinemann investigated a traffic incident where a driver failed to yield the right of way to our school crossing guard at Hwy PP and Highland Drive. A Sheboygan Falls woman was cited.

Officer Reinemann investigated a hit-and-run crash at Hwy PP and Hwy A where a semi-tractor/trailer drove over a yield sign. Kohler Co. had video of the crash. Officer Reinemann was able to locate the driver and issued him a citation.

Officer Schoch assisted Sheboygan Falls officers at a traffic stop where four men were all wanted on warrants. One subject had 24 open arrest warrants outstanding for him.

Officer Hocevar, Officer Gross and Chief Darin responded to I-43 at Hwy 23 where a car hauler lost a loading ramp into the roadway. Three vehicles struck the ramp and received flat tires before it was removed from the roadway.

Officer Schoch investigated a case of employee theft from the Target store at Deer Trace.  Over a period of time, the employee stole over $350 dollars. The 23 year-old Sheboygan man was cited.

Officer Schmitz was requested to deploy tire deflation devices on I-43 as a deputy was in pursuit of a vehicle northbound from the Cedar Grove area. The suspect exited the Interstate before reaching Officer Schmitz’s location. The pursuit turned southbound and was ultimately terminated at the south county line.

*Special Accomplishment:  Officer Katie Schoch passed the National Registry Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) exam. She is now licensed as an EMR. The licensed personnel of our partner, Kohler Fire Department, had been responding on medical calls with Katie when she was working solo patrol. This is no longer necessary.
