An East Dubuque man is accused of leading authorities from multiple departments on a high-speed chase through Dubuque.

According to scanner traffic, 30-year-old Justin Roling was suspected of taking items from the Kohl’s store on the Northwest Arterial.

From there, he led officers from both the Dubuque Police Department on Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office on a chase along Pennsylvania Avenue to Grandview Avenue and eventually to Dodge Street.

Roling then rolled his vehicle as he approached Dodge’s intersection with Locust Street in downtown Dubuque. Speeds apparently reached close to 70 miles per hour during the chase.

After being taken into custody, Roling was taken to Mercy Hospital, where he was treated and released.

He’s now facing five charges, including 4th Degree Theft, Eluding, Operating While Intoxicated, and Driving with a Revoked License.
