Local authorities are investigating a burglary that occurred May 26 at an Abbotsford tavern, with thieves pilfering stereo equipment worth over $2,000.

Mike Tobolic, the owner of Mike’s Wildside tavern on Abby’s south side, reported he break-in the morning of May 26. He said a stereo amplifier, CD player, tape deck, speakers, a microwave oven and$70 in cash were stolen. The value of the equipment, he said was $2,200.

Police reported a storage room and the bar had been trashed, with articles tossed around and cases of beer tipped over.

Police were told that a local man wanted on a felony escape warrant was in town, and were directed to the farm of the man’s girlfriend, where the man’s truck was spotted. A check with the county district attorney revealed the officers could not obtain a search warrant to look for the man unless they had physically seen him on the property, so they watched from the road.

A man riding an off-road motorcycle then took off from the farm through the fields. Local and county officers gave chase with their cars on town roads in the Town of Unity, then on foot in brush and woods. A civilian aiding the police ran the ram to the ground and he was cuffed and arrested by officers and taken to jail. He faces possible charges of fleeing an officer non-registration, no eye protection on a motorcycle and operating after revocation.
