UPDATE: Theft pursuit leads to full I-94 freeway closure; car stolen, freeway re-opened

I-94 has been re-opened after both directions were closed in Waukesha County due to the pursuit of theft suspects, one of whom eventually stole a vehicle.

The closure happened just after 11 a.m. at County SS in Delafield. I-94 westbound was re-opened by 11:30 a.m., and eastbound lanes shortly afterward.

The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said that someone called in a retail theft report from Johnson Creek in Jefferson County. A Delafield Police officer found a suspect's vehicle on I-94 eastbound. That vehicle stopped at County SS.

A man fled that vehicle, stole another car and fled the area. There was no initial word on the status of the search for him.

Two women in the original vehicle remained on scene and were arrested.
