An inmate on Huber release was arrested and returned to the Crawford County Jail Sunday, Sept. 11, after he was on the loose for more than 36 hours, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
Trent Gilbertson was released from the jail on Friday, Sept. 9, at 6:28 a.m., for Huber work release, as he was doing construction in the Prairie du Chien area. As of Saturday, Sept. 10, at 7 a.m., he had not returned. He was being held on a warrant for failure to support child.
The Prairie du Chien Police Department and surrounding counties were notified that Gilbertson had not returned as scheduled.
Finally, at 6:45 p.m., Sunday, Gilbertson was arrested after the sheriff’s department received a tip that he was staying at a residence in Prairie du Chien. Prairie du Chien police responded and arrested Gilbertson, who was intoxicated.
