A 17-year-old linked to a recent string of burglaries in the city of Waukesha was taken into custody on Monday, July 14.
According to a news release from the Waukesha Police Department, at approximately 3 p.m. Monday, the Waukesha Police Department arrested a suspect believed to be responsible for several recent burglaries on the south side of the city.
A search warrant was subsequently conducted at a residence in the 300 block of Douglass Avenue. The search closed down portions of the street and brought out the SWAT Team. According to Lt.
