On Oct. 7, the Sheriff’s Office received an alert to keep a lookout for a 2013 Ford Mustang stolen from the Sturgeon Bay area.

At about 12:18 p.m., a Manitowoc County Sheriff’s lieutenant located the stolen car going east on Goodwin Rd east of County Highway B in the Township of Manitowoc.

The lieutenant attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver took off at speeds reaching 100 mph.
