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.

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.

If there's one thing I've learned in this life after 61 years, is I can not judge others not having walked in their shoes. We don't know what this young person's life has been like so we should not be judging. Maybe asking questions first from him would be helpful?

The guy is 20. Even assuming the parents are evil, 20 is high-time to man up and find the appropriate shelter or help from friends to get back on his feet. Put up or shut up--can the guy come live with you? I enjoy Menomonee Falls for many reasons, one of the most important being the low crime rate.

Has this guy not herd of all the free stuff he can get from Obama?

If I remember right from a past article, while this detitute is "homeless" (just not living back with his parents), he still has a cell phone. Wonder how he has that.

Obama is the number one value cell provider in the country.
