Search for convicted felon in Wisconsin


The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and Wisconsin Department of Corrections are looking for a Merrill man.

Sheriff's officials say Christopher Meindel, 36, was released on a signature bond from Lincoln County Court but has now fled from officers.

Authorities say Meindel is a convicted felon and now faces other drug charges in Lincoln County.

On Tuesday, Meindel reported to his probation agent for a regular meeting.
Investigators say when he was requested to take a urine test to check for the presence of drugs Meindel refused and fled the office.

The sheriff's office says Meindel was traveling to the Baraboo area for work and may have fled there.

Authorities believe he also may have cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet.

The sheriff's department say Meindel lists him as dangerous due to violent tendencies.

If you have any information about Christopher Meindel, you are asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 715-536-6272.
You can also call Crime Stoppers at 715-536-3726.
