Case: UPDATE Fugitive Captured 20-34264
Authority: Lieutenant Tim Kemps

Twenty seven-year-old Dmonte Williams was arrested by the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and a Washington County sheriff’s detective on Thursday morning in the City of Milwaukee without incident. He was wanted by Washington County authorities since December of last year for his alleged involvement in a home invasion robbery in the Village of Richfield last October.

Cheryl Bodoh, 52 years old of Richfield pled guilty and was sentenced in March to eight years in prison for her involvement in the incident.

The victim, an 85-year-old woman was home alone on the morning of October 23rd. Two masked individuals believed to be Bodoh and Williams entered the house through a rear patio door. It is alleged that Williams started pushing the victim in her wheelchair towards the basement stairs until Bodoh stopped him just before reaching the stairs fearing that he was going to push her down them.

Bodoh stole a bag of jewelry from the victim’s bedroom while Williams took the victim’s cell phone; they then fled the area. The victim was not physically injured in the incident.

Washington County sheriff’s investigators recovered some of the stolen jewelry after executing a search warrant at Williams’s residence in the City of Milwaukee several days after the incident.

Williams has been charged in Washington County Circuit Court with one count of felony burglary (with a person present) with an additional enhancer for elder abuse. He remains in custody at the Washington County Jail.
