Charges have been forwarded to the Washington County District Attorney Office for a 25 year old male from the Town of Trenton and his 24 year old live-in girlfriend after an investigation revealed that the male was stealing items from parked motor vehicles. These thefts occurred in the Town of Trenton & the City of West Bend. It is alleged that the woman knowingly possessed some of the stolen goods while the male has confessed to several of the thefts.
A patrol Deputy developed this male as a suspect and observed the suspect driving in Washington County. After the deputy completed a traffic stop on the vehicle, the deputy located stolen property inside the vehicle.
Subsequent interviews and follow up from the Detective Bureau cleared numerous cases and identified many victims. Some property has been returned and the Sheriff’s Office believes that we have identified all of the victims at this point. The male subject remains in custody while the female subject is not in custody at this time.
No charges have been issued at this time.
No further information will be released at this time.

Case(s): Community Notification
Authorization: Sheriff Dale K. Schmidt
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to WI Statute 301.46(2m) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.
Matthew J. Davis, 26, will be released from prison on July 9, 2013. After his release he will reside at the Washington County Jail while he attempts to locate a residence and employment. Davis was convicted of 2 counts of 948.02(2) – 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child; 1 count in Washington County on 6/4/2008 and 1 count in Rock County on 1/11/2008.

This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is NOT wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, but rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community.

Case: 13-20894 Home Intrusion
Authority: CAPTAIN STEVE GONWA
On July 1 at 12:06 a.m. the Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call of an attempted home intrusion on Skyline Dr. in the Village of Richfield. Upon the Deputy’s arrival, the suspect, a 29 year old Town of Erin man, was taken into custody.
A homeowner was inside the residence in a bedroom watching a movie when she heard noises coming from bushes outside her window. When she investigated the source of the noise, she observed the suspect standing outside the bedroom window. She did not recognize the suspect. When she demanded to know what he was doing there, the suspect responded with sexually suggestive remarks. The homeowner dialed 911 and woke her husband. The suspect went to the rear door of the residence and began knocking on the door. He then walked to the front of the residence, opened the screen door and tried to open the locked front door. He then started pounding and kicking at the front door.
When he was told to leave, the suspect kicked and cracked an opening in the front door and began reaching inside to unlock it. The husband leaned into the door from inside and struck at the suspect’s hand to keep the suspect from entering. At this point, the homeowner’s adult son had been awakened and he armed himself with a shotgun inside the residence. The suspect shouted to be let into the residence as he was “Jesus”. The husband was able to engage the suspect in conversation through the door until the Deputy arrived and took him into custody at gunpoint.
The suspect’s vehicle was found parked near the residence. Upon questioning, he stated that he had been led to the residence but would not elaborate. There is no known relationship between the suspect and the homeowners. He reported seeing demons and was possibly under the influence of alcohol and/or other drugs. The suspect has a criminal history and is also a mixed martial arts fighter. He will face charges of criminal trespass, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. He is currently detained in a mental health facility under a Chapter 51 emergency detention.
