VESPER, WI (WTAQ) - Eric Hall is still on the run.
He's the man who allegedly stole a half-dozen vehicles in central and western Wisconsin in the days after he left prison on June 10th.
The 38-year-old Hall was almost captured in July at a home in Vesper in Wood County. But authorities said a friend lied to officers about Hall's whereabouts, while Hall stole the man's vehicle and sped away.
One of the first vehicles stolen had a shotgun and rifle in it, plus hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Another belonged to a volunteer firefighter with an emergency light and siren inside.
Since then, authorities said Hall stole more vehicles, committed several burglaries, assaulted a police officer, and was involved in a high speed chase.
He has connections or has been seen in Portage, Marathon, Wood, Monroe, Jackson, Grant, Sauk, Oneida, Vilas, Eau Claire, Barron, and Chippewa counties.
Anyone with information on Hall's location is urged to call law enforcement. Officials warn people not to confront him, since he's considered dangerous.
