Fred Rushing (L) and Tyrone K. Crisco-Johnson were arrested Wednesday night in connection with an attempted burglary in Cross Plains.

CROSS PLAINS–Dane County Sheriff’s deputies arrest two men in connection with a burglary on the afternoon of July 17 in the Town of Cross Plains.

At 12:28 p.m., a neighbor called in a report of a suspicious person near a home on Valley Spring Rd. Deputies noticed damage to the screen of a back door and then saw a man running from the house. Later, a second man was seen running in the same area. 

Deputies found Fred L. Rushing, aged 21, of Madison, at a nearby tavern where he was taken into custody. An ID belonging to Tyrone K. Chrisco-Johnson, aged 28, of Fitchburg, was found inside a Chevrolet Impala at the scene. Deputies searched using a K9 and a UAV (drone), but they were not able to locate the second suspect.  

A short time later, a resident on N. Riley Rd. in the town of Springfield called 911 stating that there was a suspicious person at her door. Deputies responded and found Chrisco-Johnson and arrested him. Both men are being held in the Dane County Jail.

Sheriff’s deputies are investigating whether or not the men are involved in any other burglaries in the area.
