A rural Prairie du Chien man was arrested last week on two counts of burglary from storage units in Prairie du Chien Township, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
During the month of February, the sheriff’s department received two separate reports of burglarized storage units located on County K in the township. Entry was forcefully gained into the units by cutting the padlocks. Once entry was gained, several miscellaneous items of value were stolen from within. They included power tools, hand tools, fishing equipment and household items, with an estimated value in the thousands of dollars.
The sheriff’s department continued to actively investigate the burglaries. On Monday, April 4, the sheriff’s department initiated contact with Christopher Caya, 38, a suspect in the burglaries. Caya was ultimately arrested on the two counts of burglary.
