Suspect charged with UW-Eau Claire thefts

Local News

A suspect is charged after a rash of burglaries this summer at UW-Eau Claire.

Billy Blaser, 19, is charged with two counts of burglary and three counts of misdemeanor thefts.

Police say the thefts happened throughout July and August. The criminal complaint shows property was taken from Towers Hall and Murray Hall where Blaser lived.

Some stolen items included an X-Box, Airpods, cash and Cheez-Its.

To avoid being a victim of theft, sergeant Chris Kirchman recommends students keep valuables locked up or out of sight. Even inside their dorm rooms.

“We just ask students to be aware report suspicious activity so we can check on it and so we don’t have someone come and target our home here,” said Kirchman.”If something doesn’t feel right that’s what we are here for we are here to investigate that and make sure there is no danger to the university community.”
