Notorious thief charged once again in Milwaukee

Daniel Bercyzk, a notorious thief who has been charged with 81 crimes since 1996 – that’s 81 distinct criminal charges in 48 separate cases with 37 convictions – has recently been charged with stealing over $1,000 worth of scrap metal in New Berlin, over $3,000 in copper wire and power tools from Eau Claire-based home improvement center Menards, and a $20,000 trailer from someone named Randy Schwartz.

Bercyzk entered a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease to five felonies and three  misdemeanor charges on Monday, November 9 at the Milwaukee County Courthouse in Wisconsin.

In September 2015, video surveillance showed Bercyzk having a confrontation with a woman at a Franklin gas station after which he forced her out of her vehicle, causing the woman to fall to the ground and wound her elbow, and drove away in it.
