 A Webster City man is facing charges after an incident late Wednesday night in Fort Dodge. Fort Dodge Police were notified of a burglary at Racing Unlimited,2606 200th Street. The Webster County Sheriff's Department assisted officers at the scene. Sgt. Chris O'Brien of the Webster County Sheriff's Office arrived first on the scene and was able to inform responding officers that the male suspect had fled in a white van heading eastbound out of town on 200th Street (Webster County Road D-20). Additional officers quickly arrived on the scene to search for any additional suspects and secure the scene.  Sgt. Dan Charlson of the Fort Dodge Police Department was able to continue east on 200th Street in an attempt to locate the fleeing vehicle. Approximately a half mile outside of Fort Dodge. Sgt. Charlson discovered the vehicle rolled over on its top in a bean field. A male subject was seen running from the scene of the accident and out into traffic. The subject was identified as the sole suspect and was taken into custody. He was identified as 35 year old Jason Onderdonck of Webster City. During the subsequent investigation into the incident, it became known Onderdonck had used the vehicle owned by Racing Unlimited, to ram the entry doors  in order to gain entry. In doing so, damage was also sustained to other property including a motorcycle and a truck. After this, Onderdonck fled in the stolen van, driving recklessly out of town. Moments before he lost control, Onderdonck had struck the rear end of a motorist traveling eastbound on 200th Street, causing Onderdonck to lose control and rolling the vehicle onto its top and into the field. The other driver involved in the collision was not harmed and sustained only minimal damage to his truck. Onderdonck was transpored to the Webster County Jail. He is charged with First Degee Theft, First Degree Criminal Mischief, Third Degree Burglary and Driving While Barred.
