— A suspect in multiple burglaries in Rock and Walworth counties was arrested Thursday night in Sarasota County, Fla., Fontana police said Friday.

Jonathan A. Jeske, 31, of Williams Bay is a suspect in at least five October burglaries in Fontana, Williams Bay and Walworth Township, according to police.


He was arrested at 10:59 p.m. Thursday at a residence in Venice, Fla., a spokeswoman for the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.


Jeske is wanted on Walworth County bail jumping charges. He posted a $1,400 bond the night of Nov. 14 after Clinton police arrested him Nov. 13 on suspicion of credit card fraud and receiving stolen property.


Walworth County authorities were unable to have a warrant authorized to have Jeske transferred to the Walworth County Jail before he posted bond in Rock County. A warrant was issued Nov. 16.


Fontana police said Friday they believe Walworth County has plans to extradite Jeske, but the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department couldn’t confirm that.
