2500 block of McDivitt Rd


Menes Weightman, male, 43 years old




Menes A Weightman, 43 years of age, is in custody for an extraditable warrant out of Texas for Aggravated Battery to an Elderly Person, and has multiple pending charges related to his crimes.
Over the course of the last week, MPD and several local law enforcement agencies have been investigating several vehicle thefts from a Madison area car dealership, in addition to various burglaries. In the last 24 hours, local and statewide agencies converged and discovered that there was a common suspect – Weightman - amongst their jurisdictions, who is believed to be involved in many burglaries, identity thefts, assaults and other criminal behavior across Wisconsin and the Midwest. This subject was arrested in the 2500 block of McDivitt Rd this morning by Madison Police.
Stolen vehicles and large amounts of stolen property are currently being processed. MPD is working hard to identify which cases are connected to Weightman. Due to the breadth of the suspects' crimes and geographical targets, Detectives will work diligently to piece together the cases and bring justice to the victims.

This is was important work completed by numerous law enforcement agencies.  This case illustrates the importance of filing police reports when items are stolen from your possession.  Law enforcement works hard to not only arrest criminals but to return stolen items back to their rightful owner.  As part of the lengthy processing ahead, staff will match stolen items from previous police reports to the large stockpile found today.
