It all started on September 26th, when Brookfield Police were called out to a Scholossman’s Dodge City dealership. An officer noticed smashed windows. After taking a look at the surveillance footage, it showed three males breaking in and going through cabinets around 3:20 in the morning. The three suspects then took off with three cars.
Later that morning, police followed a Nissan Murano that was listed as a stolen car from Franklin. Investigators used a GPS tracking system to track down the suspect and the stolen vehicle. Police arrested the suspect 18 year-old Tybress Cannon who was seen leaving the car. The incident put Rufus King High School on lockdown.
According to court documents, Cannon told police he was picked up in the Nissan Murano and a group drove to the dealership. When they got there, Cannon said he threw rocks at the glass exterior of the building to get in. Then he said someone told him to search for the key and key fobs. Once they found them, they used them to search for the matching car.
On September 30th, Cannon was charged with misdemeanors and released on bond.
Less than a week later on October 6th, Cannon was involved in a school bus accident in Milwaukee. He was in one of four cars that were stolen from the Acura dealership in Brookfield. At the scene Parks,Jackson and Smith were arrested. The passenger in the car was Antonio Price.
Price told police that he stayed inside the van while Joshua Brown, Cannon, Jackson and Smith broke into the Acura dealership. He said Cannon did not go inside. The other suspects left the building once they found the key fobs and began trying to locate the cars it belonged to. Price also admitted Cannon, Smith, Jackson and Parks were at the Schlossman's Dodge City.
Price said Brown left in a stolen gray Acura to go back to Milwaukee. At some point, Brown was in an accident in Wauwatosa.
