EAU CLAIRE, Wis (WLAX/WEUX) – The two Florida teenagers accused of stealing from dozens of vehicles in the Chippewa Valley and leading officers on a high-speed chase have now been charged. 18-year-old Demitrius Major and 17-year-old Kawan Robinson, both from Fort Lauderdale, are being held in the Eau Claire County Jail.

A criminal complaint says they were arrested last Sunday (11/5/23) after a chase on I-94 where they were driving the wrong way in a black Range Rover. Earlier that day, nearly two dozen car break-ins were reported in Eau Claire, Altoona and Chippewa Falls. Purses, cash, and numerous credit cards were reported stolen. Eau Claire County Deputies also believe this white minivan with no visible license plates is connected to the case.
