Dane County Deputies are asking for your help identifying a burglar.
A woman walked in on a burglary in progress around 7:30 this morning. She was checking on the home of a deceased relative on Marty Road in the town of Verona.
She discovered the man in the kitchen. He is described as a white male, approximately 50-years-old, with a slim build, shoulder length gray hair and long sideburns. He was seen wearing dirty light-colored blue jeans and possibly a green shirt. The woman says the man spoke slowly and was difficult to understand.
After being confronted by the woman, the burglar fled in a four-door, cranberry red car, possibly a Toyota Corolla. The woman says the car was “full of junk”, with one of the passenger side windows being covered in clear plastic. She believes the Wisconsin license plate included the letters SKF or SFK.
Anyone with information should call the Dane County tip line at (608) 284-6900.
