Friday, August 9th, 2013 at 6:03 am

On Thursday, the Waupun cop who led police on a chase and was found after a manhunt made his first appearance before a judge in Burnett County. That judge set a signature bond for Bradley Young of $50,000 and a cash bond of $10,000.

The Burnett County District Attorney told the judge that Young was a flight risk and added that he was accused of committing one felony burglary in the county. The District Attorney added that Young will likely face felony fleeing charges in Barron County and numerous burglary charges in Green Lake County..

The 43-year old Young said he has worked for the Waupun Police Department for 22 years.

Young is scheduled to appear in Barron County court on Friday via video conference.

As we’ve reported previously, the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Department believes that Young, dressed in camouflage, broke into Walkers Kollerville Restaurant in Green Lake about 1 a.m. Monday.

Monday evening, Barron County sheriff’s officials say Young led deputies on a car chase and fled on foot into some woods near Rice Lake. A search continued until Tuesday night when Young was arrested at a residence near Spooner.
