Twin Lakes Police officers stop burglary in progress

The sound of breaking glass led two Twin Lakes Police officers to a buglary in progress at a downtown business early this morning.

From a statement released by Chief Dale Racer: Police Officers Katie Hall and Joseph Patla were on foot patrol in the downtown area checking businesses at about 2:11 a.m. when they heard the sound of breaking glass. Upon further investigation, the officers observed the front window of  a tavern in the 300 block of East Main Street smashed out. Officers observed a white male subject behind the bar area attempting to open the cash register. The 45-year-old Twin Lakes resident was taken into custody without incident. During the preliminary investigation by the on-scene officers, it was learned that the suspect was currently on probation for burglary. The Wisconsin Department of Corrections immediately put a probation hold on the suspect. The Police Department is looking into a connection to several other burglaries in the downtown area in recent weeks possibly by the above suspect. The suspect is being held in the Kenosha County Jail pending further investigation.
