The Sawyer County Sheriff's office says they arrested a man that ran from police after a high speed chase last week that began in Barron County and ended in Sawyer County. 

Authorities arrested 23-year-old, Kenneth Quagon on Friday during a traffic stop in Hayward. Two other males and one juvenile were also taken into custody. 

The chase last Wednesday started when employees of the Rice Lake Kohl’s store reported a shoplifting incident. 

A Barron County Sheriff’s Deputy began the pursuit when the suspect vehicle was seen traveling north on U.S. 53. Washburn County deputies picked up the chase and pursued the vehicle into Sawyer county where the car crashed after being disabled by spike strips placed in the roadway by police in Sawyer County.
