Detective Young Recognized

Detective Kasey Young received a Letter of Commendation, for his first case that he was assigned in the detective division.

Dodge County Sheriff's Detective Kasey Young was promoted to detective on April 6, 2023. The first case he was assigned as a new detective was an armed robbery, armed burglary, impersonating a peace officer, and false imprisonment case which occurred in the early morning hours of January 28, 2023, in Hustisford.

The case could have gone unsolved, but due to Detective Young's attention to detail, he recognized that an electronic service provider delivered the wrong information on one of the initial search warrants. Detective Young worked with the company and obtained the correct information. Detective Young furthered the investigation by writing additional search warrants pertaining to the suspects. He also networked with out-of-state law enforcement and developed additional information that led to the arrest of Anthony Smith and Robert Ledbetter.

This complex case was assigned to Detective Young as a newly promoted detective with minimal formal investigative training, but he worked the case with confidence.
