Kerstetter had served about three weeks of his sentence during which period he was kept at work by Sheriff Paul Schmidt; and one day disppeared. At the same time a Ford car owned by Mr. McIntyre at Waldo disappeared. Later is was found that Kerstetter had stolen this car and had abandoned it at Random Lake where is was recovered and returned to its original owner. It transpired that after this episode Kerstetter went to Fond du Lac where he stole a Chevrolet, in which automobile he had been touring the country all the way to the state of Pennsylvania. Sunday the sheriffs office was notified that the man was visiting his wife at a farm home shere she is employed about one mile south of Plymouth. Undersheriff Theodore Dickrell and Deputy Lester Grube immediately drove to the place. When Kerstetter saw the officers driving into the yard, he made a dash out of the rear door of the house and sprinted across the field, vaulted the creek at the Brickbauer mill and hid in a clump of bushes on the other side of the stream While Kersteter was busy watching the deputy, Undersheriff Dickrell crept up from an opposite direction and came upon the fugitive before he was away of the presence of the officer.
