MERRILL, Wis. (WSAW) - A 36-year-old man is in the Lincoln County Jail and deputies are searching for two other suspects following an early morning pursuit.

An investigation began around 1 a.m. Thursday morning after a deputy spotted three suspicious vehicles at a storage unit north of Merrill. When the deputy attempted contact, the vehicle drove away. The deputy pursued one vehicle and responding deputies pursued the two other vehicles. Both pursuits ended in Merrill. The drivers got out of the vehicle and ran away.

The two vehicles are held as evidence, but the suspects have not been arrested. A third vehicle was found north of Merrill.
