Brookfield Police Release Surveillance Pictures of Home Break-In Suspect
Police in Brookfield have released surveillance pictures of a man they say broke into and ransacked a home last week.
Police say the suspect made off with thousands of dollars’ worth of jewelry and 2 indoor security cameras.
Brookfield police say that the owner of a home on Capone Court came home in the afternoon of March 20 and saw someone had broken in through the back patio door. They immediately called police.
Surveillance video shows the suspect was inside between 10 and 15 minutes before making his getaway.
Police believe this may have been an isolated incident, but still asking residents to be aware of their surroundings, and help be the eyes and ears of police.
“We just ask people to be vigilant and cognizant of what’s going on around them, their vehicle, their residence, their businesses. And anytime, if they see something they think is suspicious, then they should immediately report that and let law enforcement look into it,” said Cpt. Phil Horter.
The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, between the ages of 25 and 30. Police believe he is 5’ 4’’ to 5’ 7’’, weighing somewhere between 150 and 170 pounds. Police say he also had a goatee, and was carried the items away in a leather duffel bag, with an embroidering on it that says “Mallory.”
Police say they are working with Crime Stoppers of Waukesha County, and you could be rewarded if you have any information leading to an arrest.
