Two suspects accused of laundromat burglary



Two La Crosse men are charged with burglary for a break-in last week at an Onalaska business. 

Michael Vandenbergh and Lucas Armstrong are accused of breaking into a safe at the Sno White Laundry on Oak Avenue South last Friday. 

Police tracked down the two men who were seen in security videos at the laundry. 

Officers recovered stolen bank bags, keys, and coins, and also found a variety of drugs including meth, ecstasy, and marijuana. 

Armstrong pled guilty last year in a highly-publicized break-in and vandalism case in 2019, at the Oktoberfest office in La Crosse.  

Armstrong was placed on probation for the Oktoberfest burglary.

In another La Crosse court case, a fight over mask-wearing in public which led to criminal charges for assault can now proceed in court. 

Danny Link of La Crosse has been found competent to go on trial, for allegedly punching an elderly man outside the Walgreen’s on West Avenue in February. 

The victim reportedly had criticized Link for not wearing a face covering inside the drugstore. 

A preliminary hearing for Link is scheduled for next week.
