Arrest Made In St. Peter Thefts

A 32-year old male is in custody following a string of thefts in the St. Peter area. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s department received numerous complaints Friday morning of vehicles being entered illegally Thursday evening and early Friday morning.

Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt said a night shift deputy canvassed the area while on patrol Saturday morning and noticed a vehicle acting suspiciously. When the deputy stopped the vehicle, he noticed several items inside that matched the description of items stolen from vehicles the night before.

The suspect was arrested on numerous warrants in addition to the theft charges.

The Sheriff’s Department is again encouraging residents to lock up all vehicles and remove anything of value from sight.
