Beaver Dam Man Arraigned For Crack-Fueled Crime Spree

9/7/17 – A Beaver Dam man charged in connection with a crack cocaine fueled crime spree this past winter was in Dodge County court for an arraignment hearing yesterday. Corey Landsee entered a not guilty plea to three felony counts of Theft of Movable Property and felony Misappropriate ID to Obtain Money. On December 31 and January 3, the 28-year-old allegedly entered the BP gas station on Madison Street in Beaver Dam and demanded money from the cash register. The total amount reported stolen was over $360 dollars. On January 4, Landsee demanded money from the clerk at Coyote Gas and Liquor on North Spring Street in Beaver Dam, and left with a stack of fives and singles. No weapons were reportedly displayed or implied. Also, in December, Landsee allegedly took a debit card from a family member and made unauthorized charges totaling over $530 dollars. According to the criminal complaint, the family member does not want to be repaid but rather have Landsee seek help for his drug addiction. In talking with police, Landsee said he needed the money to pay for drugs. He reportedly said that he was (quote) “out of [his] mind on crack and made some really bad decisions.” If convicted on all counts, he faces 36 years in prison.
