Juneau — A 51-year-old Sun Prairie man made his initial appearance in court on Wednesday, accusing him of stealing a cart of goods from a Beaver Dam store, including two televisions.
Kenneth McLean faces two counts of misdemeanor counts of retail theft and bail jumping and cocaine possession, drug material possession and bail jumping misdemeanors. He could face up to 10 years in prison on the charges.
McLean appeared before Dodge County Court Commissioner Steven Semm and was held on a $10,000 cash bond. Per the terms of its bond, McLean may not have any direct or indirect contact or communication with the business.
According to the criminal complaint, Beaver Dam police were informed at 8:40 pm on Tuesday that a man was exiting through the back door of an unidentified business stealing TVs. The man had a full car of goods, including a television, but before he left, some of the items were recovered in a Jeep Patriot being driven by someone else.
Another officer stopped the vehicle on North Spring Street on Woodland Drive.
Police saw video footage purportedly showing McLean walking into the store with a vehicle full of electronics such as TVs and computers. He entered the outdoor lawn and garden area with the car and removed the safety equipment attached to the objects before leaving the fire door with the car.
