On April 18, 2021, at approximately 4:50 AM, the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office was investigating a suspicious vehicle at the Janesville School. During the incident, 18-year-old Dakota Moeller of rural Janesville led a Bremer County Deputy in a pursuit that traveled into Black Hawk County. The pursuit ended when Moeller lost control and entered a ditch on Butler Road. It was learned the vehicle had been stolen from a Janesville residence earlier in the morning.
