The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Corrections are searching for a convicted felon who appears to be on the run.
Christopher Meindel, 36, was free on an $8,000 stemming from open drug charges in the county, and had been living in probation/parole housing.
The sheriff's department says on Tuesday Meindel reported to his probation agent for a regular meeting. When he was asked to take a urine test to check for the presence of drugs, Meindel refused and fled the office.
Online court records list his previous address in Baraboo. Authorities say Meindel was traveling to the Baraboo area for work and may have fled there.
Meindel's previous convictions include, theft, burglary, and drug related offenses.
They says he also may have cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Christoper D. Meindel you are asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 715-536-6272.
