2450 Atwood Ave. (St. Bernard Catholic Church)


Michael J. McDonald, age 57, Madison
Suspect was arrested for Possession of Stolen Property. Additional tentative charges are pending.


Acting on a tip from a television viewer, the MPD took a suspect into custody just after 5:30 p.m. yesterday. The 57-year old Madison man was located in the 1000 block of Northport Dr. At this time he is in custody on a warrant and has not been tentatively charged in this case. It is expected that his name will be released later today after a MPD detective finishes reports establishing probable cause. The MPD would like to thank citizens for helping identify the suspect after a surveillance photo was released to media this week.

The MPD is seeking help identifying a person of interest in a theft case that targeted bridesmaids last month. The three victims were upstairs, watching a couple exchange vows at a wedding ceremony, as a thief worked the basement of St. Bernard Catholic Church, 2450 Atwood Ave. That is where the victims' purses had been left unattended. Three wallets were removed as cash and credit cards were stolen. One was used a short time later at an area Walmart. The surveillance picture is of the person who used the card. The MPD would like to identify him. If you know who he is, please call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014.
