LAKE GENEVA — Police tell FOX6 News a man accused of eluding police in the parking lot of the Home Depot store in Lake Geneva on Monday, May 13 has been taken into custody. Police identified the suspect as Modesto Esparza. He was located in Delavan.

Genoa City police said on Monday, a search warrant was executed at a home in the Village of Genoa City — where multiple people were taken into custody on drug and bail jumping charges from February when another search warrant was executed there.
