8080 Watts Rd. (Princeton Club)


Male, age 71, Madison


Area health club members are being put on alert after a MPD crime analyst discovered a pattern of thefts where men's locker rooms have been targeted and credit cards stolen. Cases date back to January with several victims reporting similar crimes in Madison, Middleton, and Fitchburg. In all of the pattern crimes, credit cards were removed from both unlocked lockers and those secured with a padlock. A thief then quickly uses them to run up charges at area stores, with gift cards and electronics often purchased. The MPD is working with area law enforcement agencies to identity and arrest those involved. Photos of two men, who are persons of interest in a couple of the cases, are included with this release. Anyone with information should contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
