Four Franklin Men Arrested for Explosions in Kayla's Park

Four suspects were arrested recently for the explosions at Kayla’s Park in Franklin back on October 09, 2015.

All of the suspects were from Franklin.

According to Franklin Police, the incident happened at approximately 12:00 a.m.

Franklin Police Department responded to reports of an unknown suspicious loud noise occurring in the area of Kayla’s Park located in the 3700 blk of West Puetz Road.

While checking the area, responding officers discovered two suspicious bottles in the wooded area located west of Kayla’s Park.  The plastic bottles contained an unknown substance and appeared to be expanding while venting a white colored vapor.

Evidence collected at the scene was sent to the Milwaukee office of the Wisconsin State Crime Lab for analysis.  In late January 2017, results received from the State Crime Lab helped identify possible suspects in the incident. 

Franklin Police arrested a 19 year old Franklin man for state charges of Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety and Disorderly Conduct.

On February 03, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office issued 1 count of Disorderly Conduct – Party to a Crime against the suspect.  That charge is currently pending in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.

Also taken into custody in connection with the incident were a 20 year old man and two 19 year old men, all from Franklin.  All three suspects currently have Disorderly Conduct charges pending in Franklin Municipal Court.
