MINDORO, Wis. (WKBT) — A Galesville man was arrested for multiple burglaries last week, including one in which he is accused of using a vehicle to gain entry to Mindoro Country Store, according to the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators say Brian Jaderston, 44, was arrested Saturday after trying to flee from the Hampton Inn in Onalaska through a first-floor window.

According to the sheriff’s office, investigators responded to a report of a burglary at the Mindoro Country Store at 3:27 a.m. Jan. 8 to find that an individual had used a vehicle to enter the store and stole cigarettes and other items. They were able to identify the vehicle and the suspect. Later that same day, patrol officers responded to reports that someone had entered homes in the Green Oaks Mobile Home Park in Holmen and were able to determine that the suspect was the same person from the store burglary.

Jaderston is under investigation for burglaries in La Crosse County and the surrounding area. He has not yet been charged, according to court records.
