City police also arrested 19-year old Joshua Robel of Sturgeon Bay & an unnamed 16 year old juvenile. Austad was cited as a repeat offender for being party to the crime of armed robbery, & first degree reckless endangerment, along with two counts of burglary & two counts of felony bail jumping. Robel, who is also 19, faces charges of party to the crime of armed robbery & obstructing a police officer. The case of the 16-year old will be handled in juvenile court. Because the police department case intersected with a burglary investigation being conducted by the Door County Sheriff’s Department, a number of cases in the county were also resolved by the arrests.
