Authorities searching for escaped inmate in Dodge County



A man who escaped from the Dodge County Jail early Friday morning has been found.

Wauwatosa police arrested Dylan Joseph Farber, 30, on 109th Street after a foot chase.

They said he was going door-to-door when they found him.

Authorities said Farber was apparently able to pick a lock, force a door and make his way into the work release, or Huber, part of the Dodge County Jail. Farber was able to escape through doors at the Huber facility. He waited until another inmate was coming back from work release and then ran out through those doors, going out the front door towards downtown Juneau.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office said Farber stole a tan 1999 GM Suburban overnight in Juneau. Wauwatosa police did not find the vehicle.

His mother told WISN 12 News reporter Nick Bohr that she was worried about how his escape might end.

“Nobody’s heard from him. I just don’t know how to get the message to him to turn himself in. I would rather have him go in unharmed,” Gwenn Farber said.

Farber was taken back to the Dodge County Jail on Friday afternoon and additional charges have been requested, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Farber is the man who allegedly led officers on a high-speed chase and then tased the town of Oconomowoc’s police chief.

He was being held for fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer. His cash bond was set at $2,000.
