WEST BEND, WI (WTAQ) - Two people from Kewaskum have been arrested in Florida, after they allegedly stole a pick-up truck at gunpoint from an employee of a West Bend car dealership.
39-year-old Scott Kudek and 24-year-old Kayla Goemer took the vehicle out for a test-drive last Wednesday with a salesman at a Russ Darrow dealership.
When they entered the town of Farmington, authorities said Kudek threatened the salesman with a knife and ordered him to get out of the vehicle.
Officials said the two suspects allegedly stole gas and took off after that.
Washington County sheriff’s deputies obtained arrest warrants for Kudek and Goemer, and they were picked-up early Sunday in Hillsborough County, Florida.
The stolen truck was recovered.
Both suspects are charged with armed carjacking, reckless endangerment, and bail jumping – all felonies.
They’re expected to be extradited back to Wisconsin to face their charges.
