The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department has one robber in custody and is looking for an attempted robbery suspect after an eventful overnight shift for deputies. At approximately 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night, an unidentified man wearing a college sweatshirt, sunglasses, and a dark-colored mask tried robbing a gas station in the town of Carlton. The suspect left the store after the clerk denied him the money he was trying to get. In a separate incident at around 3 a.m., deputies responded to a broken window and a burglarized car in the Village of Luxemburg. They were able to find the suspect in that crime, who later admitted entering and stealing from multiple vehicles in Luxemburg and Kewaunee. Sheriff Matt Joski says it is a reminder for all residents to take the necessary steps to secure their vehicles.
Joski believes the incidents are unrelated and says they are both are under investigation. We have more information on both incidents, including a picture of the suspect in the attempted robbery, with this story.
