Forest County - Forest County deputies chased a 29-year-old Monico man more than 15 miles through the county last week. That man is now charged with nine different felonies. A caller told deputies a large amount of money was stolen from a house Monday in Mole Lake. When they arrived, Thomas Olds took off in a car. Deputies chased him. Olds drove more than a hundred miles an hour, tried to hit a deputy with his car, and barrelled over spike strips. Deputies finally tasered him at his home in Monico. Olds is charged with drug-related crimes, as well as bail jumping and endangering safety. He'll be in court on January 8th.
