JUNEAU - Six charges have been filed against a Berlin man for allegedly stealing multiple vehicles and leading police on a chase.

Maxwell Decker returns to court Thursday for a preliminary hearing in Dodge County court. He is being on a $100,000 cash bond.

The sheriff's department says a deputy tried to pull over a vehicle on State Highway 175 for reckless driving on Aug. 9. The driver didn't pull over. After an 11.5 mile chase, the driver eventually crashed the vehicle in a ditch in Dodge County. This vehicle was reportedly stolen from the city of Berlin.

Sheriff's officials say the driver ran away and stole a second vehicle near the crash scene. Sheriff deputies later located that vehicle in the town of Oakfield in Fond du Lac County.
