Nowhere Else To Go: Man Breaks in Schwabenhof Office, Police Say

An essentially homeless 20-year-old Menomonee Falls man faces charges after breaking into an office at Schwabenhof. He had planned to sleep there for the night.

A Menomonee Falls man who is already charged with party to a burglar at his mother’s home in 2011 has found himself facing a similar charge in 2013.

Trevor Fields, 20, was charged with bail jumping, unlawful entry into a locked room, and disorderly conduct, after breaking into an office in an outbuilding of Schwabenhof on Silver Spring Drive. He faces just under seven years imprisonment and $21,000 in fines if prosecuted to the full extent.

According to the criminal complaint:

Suspicion arose March 31 when a restaurant employee discovered that someone was charging their cell phone on an exterior outlet on one of the buildings. The employee brought the phone and charger into the restaurant thinking it was an employee’s, but it turned out to be Fields’. Fields later returned to the restaurant and got his phone and charger back.

The employee then did further checks of the premises, and found that the door to an office inside an outbuilding had been kicked open. Both a safe and a refrigerator full of beer were left undisturbed.

Fields was later taken into custody because he matched the description of a possible suspect. Fields admitted to charging his phone while on his way to his 4 p.m. shift at McDonald’s on Silver Spring.

However, he continued to tell police that he was basically homeless since he is not allowed into his mother’s home since the 2011 incident. He said he had slept in an unlocked van near the area the night before the incident at the office occurred. He told police he planned to return to the office after his shift at work and sleep in it.

Nice name calling, Nuitari. I think the whole thing is terribly sad.

Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sure this guy is a model citizen just down on his luck.

So this guy is homeless, yet broke into his mother's house in 2011? Must have had family issues with that. According to CCAP, each of his three run-ins with the law have him living at different addresses.
