Guilty: 18-year-old man charged in burglary at Walgreens at 90th & Good Hope makes a plea

MILWAUKEE -- 18-year-old Demetrius Brown -- charged in connection with a burglary that occurred at the Walgreens store at 90th and Good Hope Road on June 30th, 2014 has reached a plea deal in the case against him.

In court on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015, Brown pleaded guilty to a felony charge of burglary of a building or dwelling and a felony charge of adjudged delinquent in possession of a firearm.

Two other felony charges were dismissed as a result of the plea deal.

Shortly after the June 30th burglary, the Walgreens store at 90th and Good Hope Road was open for business, but partially boarded up.

According to a criminal complaint filed against Brown, Walgreens surveillance video showed a stolen Toyota Camry back into the store's front doors.

Then, the video shows four people heading into the store -- and approximately one minute later, all four are seen leaving with merchandise.

The complaint says a fingerprint was left behind -- belonging to Brown.

When he was arrested a few days later, he admitted to "throwing a gun into the grass when he saw police."

Brown also told police he "took a cash register and cigarettes" and that he "did it for the money."

Walgreens sustained more than $25,000 worth of damage from the burglary, and about $2,000 worth of merchandise was taken.


Brown will be sentenced on August 27th.
