The next time Andrew Obregon makes an appearance driving a vehicle — as he has several times over the last week — deputies may be looking at a different car or truck.

That’s because as of Friday night, three of the vehicles associated with Andrew Obregon during recent high speed pursuits with Kenosha and Racine County Sheriff’s deputies have been recovered. They are:

  • A 2015 White Ford Transit Van with green lettering.
  • A 2001 White Ford F350 dually pick-up truck.
  • A 1988 Black Mustang .

A media release made early Saturday morning with the information about the vehicles seizures did not include details about where or when the transit van or white pick-up were found. A Milwaukee TV station aired footage of Racine County deputies with a similar white pickup in a field near the county line. Kenosha County Friday evening. Sheriff David Beth had previously disclosed that the black Mustang had been recovered.

Beth also has described Obregon as possibly driving a Ford pickup truck that was maroon but has been crudely painted black.

Obregon, 32, of Brighton is a suspect in the homicide of Tywon Anderson, 37, of Kenosha, who was found in a Paris farm field on Sept. 26.

Initially Obregon was a person of interest in the Anderson death, but Beth said Tuesday that Obregon is now a suspect.

The Sheriff’s Department has been searching intensely for Obregon since Friday, when he led deputies on a 100-mph plus chase through Paris and across the Racine County Line in the black Mustang.

Obregon is believed to have broken into a Bristol convenience store and robbed another convenience store near I-94 and Highway 50, last Saturday night, Beth said. Deputies pursued him, but Obregon crashed and abandoned a vehicle he was driving and stole the Transit van about a mile away and eluded efforts to catch him again.

Another chase took place on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. That chase started after a Racine County deputy spotted the fugitive in Racine County. Obregon, driving a white dual rear wheel pick-up, fled to Brighton and eventually lost deputies in cornfields there.

    You might want to make it four vehicles. They also recovered a Ford SUV that crashed into a fence on his way to stealing the Ford Transit Van.
