Metro Wire Staff

Plover police say a man wanted for questioning in connection with a child-related crime has been captured in Pierce County.

Drew A. Degeest was arrested on Friday, according to Capt. Gary Widder, based on a tip called into police there.

A warrant for Degeest’s arrest was issued June 28, Widder said, after he was placed on a probation hold by the Dept. of Probation and Parole.

“All we’re saying at this point is, he is wanted for questioning,” Widder said.

Degeest will be transported back to Portage Co. sometime this week, he added.
