Racine man claiming to work for All State burglarizes home of paralyzed woman

A Racine man is now facing Burglary charges following an August 14th incident. 

According to the criminal complaint, officers responded to a home in the 1600 block of Monroe Ave for a report of a burglary. They learned that both the homeowner and the suspect were inside of the home.

Upon arrival, officers observed a man, later identified as Morgan Wilson, standing in the kitchen. According to police, he was not compliant and told officers that he worked for All State and was sent to the home to take care of a bee hive. Officers made contact with Wilson's boss who said although he did work for All State, he was not authorized to do any work at the house and the residents are not clients of theirs.

Officers located several pry marks on the back door as well as a crow bar and a jewelry box containing a ladies watch.

Police made contact with one of the homeowner's who said she recently suffered a stroke and was partially paralyzed. She told police she heard a lot of banging and rattling at her back door. According to the victim, Wilson then came to her bedroom and told her that he was there to fix a beehive.

A second homeowner then arrived home and told police that their home is insured by USAA, not All State and that the crow bar was not his and that that jewelry box was moved up from the basement. 

Wilson told police that he felt bad because he did not know anyone was in the home and he was looking for something to take.
