Burglary Arrest



Buffalo County authorities said a Mindoro man accused in a series of small-time burglaries in Alma, Cochrane and Buffalo City was arrested in Fountain City and charged for 10 crimes.

Sheriff Michael Schmidtknecht said 53-year-old David Lappier was taken into custody after a scuffle in Fountain City on October 17th.

Lappier, an ex-convict with a crime history dating back to 1998 in Wisconsin, is being held in the Buffalo County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bond.

Buffalo County District Attorney Tom Clark filed five felony burglary charges and four misdemeanor theft charges against Lappier.

A charge of obstructing or resisting arrest also was brought against Lappier for roughing up a police officer after authorities confronted Lappier prowling about in Fountain City.

Lappier is scheduled to have a hearing in Buffalo County Circuit Court on November 20th.
