A 25-year-old Saukville man is facing charges after he allegedly stole his girlfriend’s parent’s car so he could get to a crack house in Milwaukee.
Jeremy A. Brandt was charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with one count of operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 5 a.m. Monday, a couple living in the 500 block of Hillcrest Court woke up to find their 1992 Honda Accord was missing from the driveway; they suspected their daughter’s boyfriend, Brandt, had taken the car. The couple then drove down to a crack house on North Avenue in Milwaukee where they found Brandt and the car.
They took the car and Brandt back to Saukville and called police. Brandt admitted to taking the car and not having permission to do so.
He will appear in Ozaukee County Court at 10 a.m. July 19.
