4 La Crosse theft, burglary suspects in court

$20,000 cash bond set for each suspect

The four people arrested for theft and burglary earlier this week are formally charged in La Crosse County court Wednesday afternoon.

Jake Underwood, 22, Dustin Cummings, 37, Roy Buck, 25, and 17-year-old Roxanne Erickson-Burback have 18 charges collectively, including theft and burglary. They were arrested Monday at the Affordable Inn.

According to the criminal complaint, the group stole a truck in Minnesota, then broke into a coin machine on the south side and left the truck there. Police matched a Wal-Mart receipt found inside the truck to security video to identify some of the suspects.

An officer identified one of the suspects while responding to a suspicious call at the Affordable in later that day. They were all arrested there.

When officers searched the hotel, they found stolen guns, tools, and military equipment believed to be stolen from Rochester on Sunday. Erickson-Burback told police it’s not drug related, they were just trying to get money.

A La Crosse County judge set a $20,000 cash bond for all four suspects.
