KRONENWETTER — Two people are facing multiple criminal charges after leading police on a chase, crashing a vehicle, fleeing on foot, and hiding in a stranger’s home in Kronenwetter, police said Friday.

The chase began in Rothschild at about 12:30 a.m., winding through the village and ending when the suspect crashed her vehicle on E. Nelson Road in Kronenwetter, police said. After the crash, the driver and passenger fled on foot through the neighborhood before sneaking into a three-season porch at a Kronenwetter home while the residents slept inside.

Police used a K-9 to track the two suspects, then woke the residents, who gave permission to search their home. The two suspects were found crouched behind furniture, hiding from police, according to a Kronenwetter Police Department release.

Marathon County Jail records show 23-year-old Jaquise Jenise Jackson, of Milwaukee, is facing charges of fleeing an officer, resisting or obstructing an officer, criminal trespassing and bail jumping. Joshua Shaquille Bracey, 24, also of Milwaukee, is being held on charges of resisting or obstructing an officer and criminal trespassing.

Both suspect are due in court Friday afternoon.

“Great job by all these law enforcement agencies, who really worked together to make this happen and protect the community,” the Kronenwetter Police Department wrote in a Facebook post.
