The district attorney in Racine County, Wis., has declined the criminal charges that a pair of suburban men faced in connection to a burglary and high-speed case that started in Elgin and ended in Wisconsin early Saturday morning.

"We had to decline the charges so they can be extradited to Illinois for the charges they have," Deputy District Attorney Patricia Hanson said Monday. "We've already initiated extradition proceedings so that they can be returned to Illinois."

Jacob Braden, 22, of the 800 block of Honey Locust Court, Bartlett, was charged in Wisconsin with felony fleeing and eluding police and with receiving possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor. Police said Braden was the driver during the chase.

Meanwhile, his passenger, Kevin Gorman, 30, of the 1200 block of Lincoln Court, Streamwood, was charged with receiving stolen property, a misdemeanor.

The pair will have a hearing this week in which they will decide whether to be extradited to Illinois, Hanson said. In Elgin, Braden is charged with burglary, aggravated battery to a peace officer, criminal damage to state supported property and aggravated fleeing and eluding. Gorman is charged with burglary, aggravated resisting arrest and criminal damage to state supported property.

The two are accused of leading police on a nearly two-hour chase stemming from a burglary at Sam's Club at 1000 S. Randall Road. Police saw the two men getting into a pickup truck in an apparent attempt to flee, and chased them, Elgin Police Lt. Dan O'Shea said in a news release.

Elgin police ended the pursuit on Interstate 94 in Lake County and Wisconsin State Patrol picked up the chase at 4 a.m. at the state line northbound on I-94, said Wisconsin State Patrol Sgt. Wendy Younglove.

The chase ended after the Racine County Sheriff's Department put spike strips on the road that shredded Braden's truck's tires, police said.
