A Janesville man faces charges in Rock County Court in connection with a break-in early Monday at the Blackhawk Golf Course pro shop.
DJ R. Weberg, 23, of 2911 Carrousel Lane, Janesville, is charged with burglary, criminal damage to property and misdemeanor theft in the incident.
Officers responded to an alarm at 2:57 a.m. Monday at the golf course, 2100 Palmer Drive, and saw a man whom they later identified as Weberg inside the pro shop, according to the criminal complaint.
Weberg tried to flee but stopped after an officer told him to lie on the ground, according to the complaint.
Weberg told police he had been sleeping in Palmer Park and was hungry, so he decided to break into the pro shop to find food, according to the complaint. Police found a box of Cheetos bags and a box of candy bars near a golf cart bridge west of the pro shop, according to the complaint.
Officers checked the shop’s north door and saw that the locking mechanisms had been chiseled away and the door had been pried open. The cord to an electronic security keypad also had been cut, the complaint states.
Weberg is scheduled for an adjourned initial appearance at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9.
