UPDATE: Van Buren Co. break-ins could be tied to crime spree – WNDU

Two big crimes over the last few weeks appear to be connected after a raid at a Mishawaka home ties it all together.

Judge orders institutionalization for Waukesha man involved in …

A Waukesha man who tore through Delafield on a naked crime spree and led police on an hourslong manhunt in 2015 will spend the next 7½ years in a state mental health facility, a Waukesha County circuit judge ruled recently.

Judge Ralph Ramirez handed down that decision for 20-year-old Cedric Kinjerski on Friday, Feb. 24, shortly after Kinjerski pleaded guilty but not guilty due to mental disease or defect to a felony burglary charge linked to the crime spree. Several additional charges filed against Kinjerski in that and separate cases were dismissed during the same hearing, court records show.

Kinjerski was potentially facing decades behind bars and up to $75,000 in fines for his role in the crime spree. He was accused in October 2015 of stealing three vehicles, causing thousands of dollars in property damage and leading police on
