Sheriff’s deputies arrest burglary suspects after neighbor tip

On the afternoon of May 24th Kenosha County Sheriff’s deputies were able to nab five burglars who allegedly had just committed two burglaries in western Kenosha County.

A witness became a hero today when her neighbor was burglarized. The witness told deputies that she saw a car leaving the area and recognized some of the occupants. That information led to the apprehension of four adults and a 15 year old.

Some of these subjects had been dropped off to conduct the burglary while the others drove around the neighborhood, said a Sheriff’s Department press release. When the drivers received the call they returned to the scene and picked up the other subjects with the stolen merchandise. The first burglary they committed was in the 24600 block of  74th Street in Paddock Lake. The second burglary they committed was in the 24700 block of 84th Street in Salem.

Sheriff David Beth:

“Congratulations to our citizens for being aware enough of their surroundings to help out a neighbor. Great job on the part of our deputies, for tracking down these burglars, and putting them in custody. These kind of people need to be behind bars.”

Charges faced by the adults include the following:  Burglary while armed, burglary, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, bail jumping, party to the crime of burglary while armed, party to the crime of burglary. They were to have an initial appearance in Intake Court at 1 p.m. today:

The juvenile will have an initial appearance in juvenile court today at 3:30 p.m. for burglary and burglary while armed.

The burglary while armed charges are due to the fact that the suspects took a firearm from one of the homes during the course of the burglary.

The suspects are not believed to be connected to a rash of recent burglaries that have occurred at locations along the state line, said Sgt. Bill Beth, Sheriff’s Department spokesman.
