Sheriff Sauve: Deputies Will Work At The Milwaukee DNC Convention

Issue Date: September 12, 2019

Marinette County Sheriff's Department has been extremely busy lately with some high profile arrests, high speed chases, and assists to other counties, according to a report made by Sheriff Jerry Sauve to Marinette County Board's Public Services Committee on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Sauve also told the committee that in response to requests from Milwaukee city and county law enforcement, the FBI and Secret Service, some Marinette County Sheriff's deputies and officers will be in Milwaukee next July, helping provide security for the Democrat Party National Convention.

Sauve noted that the recent armed robberies of the Stephenson National Bank in Pembine and Pelkins' Piggly Wiggly Store in Coleman have been solved.

Then, during the night of Sunday, Sept. 8 to Monday, Sept. 9 officers from his department and Marinette City Police were part of a significant drug arrest that resulted in apprehension of a suspect from Iron Mountain, Mich. in Oconto County and seizing of a significant amount of Methampehetamines destined for delivery in Iron Mountain.

The suspect's name has not yet been released. He is being held in Oconto County jail, and prosecution will be handled either through the Oconto County District Attorney's office or the federal justice system because of the flight between states and the amount of drugs involved, Sauve said.

The Dickinson County Prosecutor's Office had recently issued 2 arrest warrants for the man who was wanted on charges of delivery of methamphetamine in Dickinson County. The charges stemmed from a several week long investigation conducted by KIND.

Around 4 a.m. Monday, September 9, the man was stopped by the Wisconsin State Patrol near the Town of Abrams in Oconto County, Wisconsin. He was later found to be in possession of a large amount of methamphetamine. His name is being withheld pending arraignment.

The KIND team was assisted in their investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol, the Oconto County Sheriff's Office, the Marinette County Sheriff's Office and the Marinette City Police Department, according to a news release issued by Dickinson County officials.

Sauve was grateful that two recent high speed chases in Marinette County ended without major injuries, one that started in Crivitz onTuesday, Sept. 3, after a vehicle struck a gas pump and then fled from the Krist Oil station in Wausaukee fled without paying after pumping $61 of gas. A description of the vehicle was given and the plate number confirmed this Black Mercury had been stolen earlier in the day in Green Bay. A southbound Sheriffs Deputy spotted the suspect vehicle northbound in the Town of Beecher. The deputy turned around and attempted to stop the vehicle.

The suspect vehicle fled at a high speed. The deputy pursued the vehicle north to Pembine, Wisconsin then west on Highway 8. At County Road U in the Town of Dunbar, the vehicle went off the road and became stuck in the mud. The male subject fled on foot northbound into the woods.

Several other officers arrived in the area and began setting up a perimeter. The 66 year old male from De Pere was eventually spotted crossing an ATV trail and was arrested. The suspect was checked by Pembine Rescue Squad for facial scratches and lodged at the Marinette County Jail. This incident remains under investigation by the Marinette County Sheriff's Office and the Green Bay Police Department.

Those and another high speed chase were handled well, Sauve said, adding that his heart always sinks when he knows a high speed chase is in progress because he knows how dangerous they are.

Over Labor Day weekend Marinette County officers assisted Forest County with security for the busy 50th anniversary celebration of the popular Brush Run that featured popular performers Kid rock and Easton Corbin. Sauve said Sheriff John Denee had asked for help and very much appreciated that it was provided,Sauve said, adding that he believes in being a good neighbor. The Marinette county Sheriff's Department also responded to a request from Florence County Sheriff Dan Miller for help in a high speed chase that led to hospitalization of a male and female subjects. During their flight they almost hit a squad car, Sauve said.

Sauve added his department has been criticized for not writing enough speeding tickets, and commented that the officers may be able to write more tickets "if we weren't so busy doing all this other stuff."

As to the DNC national convention, Sauve said he learned about it while attending the Wisconsin Sheriff's convention in Milwaukee in August. He and other sheriffs were asked to provide help with security and were given a tour of the Fiserv Forum where the convention will be held.

He has committed four to six officers and at least one squad car. He said Milwaukee officers will do the major security on the front line areas where there may be demonstrations, while those from elsewhere will be assigned to busses, hotels, etc.

He expects to have no problem getting officers to volunteer, and Marinette County will be reimbursed for expenses.

"It's going to be a pretty cool opportunity for officers to go there and earn some overtime on their days off and be part of all that," Sauve declared, adding that if the situation arose, "...we would do the same thing for the other party."

The department is down four correctional officers, although two of the vacant positions are tentatively filled.

Jail occupancy averaged 99 last month, down slightly from recent counts.

County Administrator John LeFebvre informed the committee that his office had just been notified by Child Support Director Sue Hinch that she will retire in mod-October, so they have started the process of hiring a replacement.

Following the meeting the committee was taken on a tour of the jail by Jail Administrator Bob Majewski. It was the first time some committee members had seen the interior workings of the facility they are responsible for. Committee Chair Ken Keller, a long-time supervisor who had been on County Board when the Law Enforcement Center was built 17 years ago, pointed out the improvement it had been over the previous jail in the Ella Court building adjacent to the courthouse that is now being remodeled into county offices.

Majewski noted the jail kitchen floor will be refinished as soon as school gets out in spring, and plans are to have meals for prisoners prepared in one of the school kitchens during that time.
