Suspect in 2018 Mac Guys burglary now in jail



A suspect in a burglary that happened last year at a computer store on the Causeway is now jailed in La Crosse. 


He’s a California man, who may have traveled around the country with a partner, breaking into electronics stores and stealing large amounts of merchandise. 

The La Crosse district attorney filed charges against Jaevin Figueroa back in February and issued a warrant for his arrest. 

Figueroa was jailed in Georgia for a time this year. 

In May of 2018, two burglars broke into the Mac Guys store on Copeland Ave. and took more than $50,000 in iPads and laptops in two minutes. 

They apparently left behind burglary tools and clothes at the Dresbach rest area. 

The Wisconsin crime lab traced the DNA on one face mask to Figueroa. 

His bond at the county jail is set at $25,000.

Police think Figueroa and a second man might be connected to computer store thefts near Madison and in several Eastern states.
