Wis. Couple Held in Test Drive Carjacking

Posted Monday, February 4, 2013 --- 4:51 p.m.

WEST BEND, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin couple accused of stealing a pickup truck during a test drive last week are under arrest in Florida.

Authorities say the 39-year-old man and 24-year-old woman, both from Kewaskum, allegedly took a 2012 Dodge Ram for a spin with a salesman from a West Bend dealership last Wednesday. When they reached Farmington, the man allegedly threatened the salesman with a knife and told him to get out. Authorities say the pair then stole gasoline and fled.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the couple was caught Sunday in a Florida hotel. Deputies in Hillsborough County, Florida, also recovered the truck.

The couple will be extradited to Washington County.
