Authorities tell us that on Monday, August 19 at around 8:00AM, a suspicious vehicle was seen at a residential driveway.
Upon arrival, a Washburn County Deputy Sheriff made contact with one male and one female. After receiving conflicting statements from both occupants, the Sheriff's Deputy attempted to detain the male, who then resisted. The male was tased, but was still able to flee into the nearby wooded area near the Namekago River and Highway 63 North.
After inspection, the Sheriff's Deputy was able to learn that the vehicle was stolen during a residential burglary in Pierce County. The vehicle contained several stolen items, and other items were hidden in the nearby wooded area.
Several units from the Washburn County Sheriff's Office, including the K-9 unit were dispatched to find the two fleeing individuals. Spooner Police, Minong Police, Wisconsin State Patrol, Rice Lake Police, Wisconsin DNR and the National Park Service all assisted.
They eventually were able to track down and detain the male individual, Scott R. Ziegler from River Falls, Wisconsin.
The female has been identified as Lindsey Elizabeth Porter, a 35-year-old white female from Hudson, Wisconsin. Lindsey Porter remains at large. She is described as 5'6" tall, weighing approximately 130 pounds, with black hair, blue eyes, wearing jeans and a black shirt underneath a black jacket. Porter is known to have contacts in the Hayward area, as well as in Pierce and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin. She is not considered a physical danger to the public, however, is known for a history of property crimes and drug offenses.
Both suspects are facing multiple felony charges for numerous property crimes, as well as charges for resisting arrest.
If you see a female individual matching the description above, please call 911 or contact the Washburn County Sheriff's Office at 715-468-4720.
