The Menomonee Falls Police Department responded to a report of a theft of a maroon Plymouth Breeze in the area of Appleton Avenue and River Crest Drive.
According to police, a responding officer located the vehicle and a red Jeep Liberty following close behind. Upon signaling the vehicles to stop, both vehicles fled. The Jeep Liberty was not apprehended. The Plymouth Breeze attempted to elude officers as it traveled into Germantown, Milwaukee, and Mequon.
