Madison Man Accused Of Thirsty Beaver Break-In Is Heading To Trial

(Beaver Dam) A Madison man charged with breaking into a Beaver Dam tavern is heading to trial. Probable cause was found Thursday against Momodou Jammeh who is facing felony counts of Burglary, Possession of Burglary Tools and Bail Jumping as well as misdemeanor Obstruction. Beaver Dam police were dispatched to Thirsty Beaver around 5:30am September 4 after an alarm was tripped. When officers arrived, they located a suspicious male wearing a mask in the immediate area outside the bar. Jammeh allegedly took off on foot, ignoring repeated commands from law enforcement to stop. Jammeh reportedly jumped into the lake but was apprehended a short time later near the 500 block of Madison Street. When police searched the bar, they noticed the rear door was open and found a broken-out window on the building’s southside. They also reported that the cash register had been tampered with. The owner of the Thirsty Beaver showed authorities security photos of a suspect inside their establishment holding the cash register wearing clothes similar to the suspect. When asked for his identification, Jammeh told police his last name was (quote) “soaked.” Jammeh had five outstanding warrants from Dane County. If convicted, the 20-year-old is facing over 28 years in prison. Jammeh will be arraigned next month.
