Chilton Burglary - Solved

On July 22, 2013 in the late afternoon the Chilton Police were dispatched to a report of a male individual attempting to steal items from a garage on Diane Street. The resident was home at the time and heard a car door close in the garage. She then saw an unknown male individual in the garage. When she entered the garage to confront the individual he fled on foot thought the backyards. The subject was apprehended a short time later behind the Kaytee Office on Clay Street where he was entering vehicles in which it appeared he was looking for more items to steal.

We recovered jewelry and coins which may have been from a separate burglary. If you are missing any jewelry or coins and can identify them please contact the Chilton Police Department.

Update:  The suspect, Cliff Baranowski, has been charged with Burglary, Theft, and Attempted Theft. He was released on a $5000 Signature Bond.

We are still requesting any information on the jewelry and coins that were recovered.

The Sheriff's Department received a call from a concerned citizen reporting suspicious activity in their Darboy neighborhood. The citizen saw an unfamiliar vehicle on the street and a man switching the license plates on the car. The witness provided us with the license plate number that was being switched and a partial plate of the license plate that was being put on. A few minutes later, a Darboy gas station reported a theft of gas and provided a description of the suspect vehicle that matched the description of the vehicle that was just reported swapping plates. Security video at the gas station provided us with the swapped plate and a view of the suspect. A State Trooper stopped the suspect vehicle a short time after the theft and identified the driver who was arrested for theft. This is an example of how concerned citizens help us keep our community safe. Keep up the good work!
