Man Accused of Burglary May Have Trespassed at Local Church

Police believe the suspect is the same man who broke into a Schwabenhof outbuilding in March, and is facing charges for burglarizing his mother's home. During a recent arrest, he told officers that he is essentially homeless.

Man Accused of Burglary May Have Trespassed at Local Church

A 20-year-old Menomonee Falls man, who is thought to be homeless, was allegedly spotted drifting at Pilgrim Lutheran Church on Bette Drive.

At 7 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a call from the principal regarding a suspicious subject at the school and church. Police searched the building and verified that it was all clear. However, they found a blanket, wallet, McDonald’s food items, and pair of pants near the heating and cooling units on the east side of the church. Police and Pilgrim Lutheran staff believe it was Trevor Fields, who was caught and charged for breaking into an outbuilding at Schwabenhof, and has been warned about trespassing at the church.

School staff cleaned up the items, and told police they wanted them to speak with Fields again about staying off their property. Fields was not in the vicinity when police arrived.

Fields was charged in February 2012 for burglarizing his mother’s Menomonee Falls home. When he was arrested at Schwabenhof, he told police he had been essentially homeless since the alleged burglary. He is facing charges for burglary, bail jumping, entry into building, and disorderly conduct.
