March 8, 2017 – Town of Addison, WI – On Monday, March 6 the Washington County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 21-year-old male from Hialeah, Florida for misappropriation of ID to obtain money.

The incident stemmed from an investigation during November of 2016 where a Town of Addison man had his credit card information unlawfully used to obtain goods and services from a retailer in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The investigation revealed this suspect had been committing credit card crimes with cloned credit cards throughout the state. The suspect was initially arrested by Pewaukee Police on Nov. 9, 2016 and given a $10,000 cash bond.

Another subject from Florida posted $10,000 the following day, and the 21-year-old has been out of custody until….

The suspect appeared in court a second time in Waukesha County, this time not in custody, on March 6, 2017 for further proceedings on the Pewaukee incident.

It was at that point Washington County investigators patiently waited for the conclusion of that proceeding and subsequently took him into custody for our incident.

He was then transported to Washington County where he now remains in custody on another $10,000 cash bond.
