Guilty: 18-year-old man charged in burglary at Walgreens at 90th & Good Hope makes a plea
MILWAUKEE — 18-year-old Demetrius Brown — charged in connection with a burglary that occurred at the Walgreens store at 90th and Good Hope Road on June 30th, 2014 has reached a plea deal in the case against him.
In court on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015, Brown pleaded guilty to a felony charge of burglary of a building or dwelling and a felony charge of adjudged delinquent in possession of a firearm.
Two other felony charges were dismissed as a result of the plea deal.
Shortly after the June 30th burglary, the Walgreens store at 90th and Good Hope Road was open for business, but partially boarded up.
According to a criminal complaint filed against Brown, Walgreens surveillance video showed a stolen Toyota Camry back into the store’s front doors.
Then, the video shows four people heading into the store — and approximately one minute later, all four are seen leaving with merchandise.
The complaint says a fingerprint was left behind — belonging to Brown.
When he was arrested a few days later, he admitted to “throwing a gun into the grass when he saw police.”
Brown also told police he “took a cash register and cigarettes” and that he “did it for the money.”
Walgreens sustained more than $25,000 worth of damage from the burglary, and about $2,000 worth of merchandise was taken.
Brown will be sentenced on August 27th.
