Police Chatter: A monthly update with Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza
Hub City staff sat down with Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza for a monthly update on what is happening in the Marshfield Police Department.
Gramza stated that about three weeks ago, the department had a rash of vehicle break-ins at a business on North Central Avenue, and they were able to catch that individual in a unique way.
A young man had reported his cell phone missing and was able to track it to the Stratford area. It turned out that this was the young man who had been going through the cars and had dropped his cell phone in one of the vehicles. He had not taken anything from the vehicles, but had gone through them. The male has charges pending.
Gramza stated that this was normally a crime they see in the summer, but not during winter.
On two different occasions, Marshfield residents have reported their tires were slashed on their vehicles. The crimes happened within a few nights of each other. Leads have not produced any suspects.
Gramza also spoke about toilets that were deliberately placed in the middle of traffic lanes. This was done in daylight hours in a heavily traveled area. There are no leads at this time.
If you have any information on these crimes, please contact the Marshfield Police Department at 715-387-4394.
