‘Person Of Interest’ In Recent Beaver Dam Thefts In Custody

(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam Police arrested a man early Monday morning suspected of trying to break into a vehicle. Authorities responded to the 700 block of North University Avenue at 3:30am. The caller reported scaring-off the subject, who was apprehended a few blocks away. He is being held in the Dodge County Jail on charges of Trespassing and Disorderly Conduct. The arrest comes three days after Beaver Dam Police issued a warning to the public of an uptick in thefts from unlocked vehicles and burglaries of unsecured homes. Deputy Chief Scott Bahr says the subject in custody is a “person of interest” in the recent thefts, but he notes that all of the incidents remain under investigation.
