Three men suspected of burglarizing a home at 8:51 p.m. Tuesday, March 31 in the 2100 block of Gala Drive in Mount Pleasant have been charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Tyler Cecconie, 20, of Mount Pleasant, was charged with criminal damage to property, three counts of bail jumping, disorderly conduct, and resisting or obstructing an officer.

Charles Systma, 18, of Mount Pleasant, and Hayden Gonzalez, 20, of Racine, were charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, criminal damage to property, and disorderly conduct.

According to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department, a neighbor saw the three men near a home that was under construction, which they thought was suspicious. The neighbor called 911 since the home was burglarized the week before. During the investigation, police found the front door to the home kicked in.

An officer went inside the home and discovered the three men. Running out the back door of the home, the officer chased the suspects outside. He ordered them to stop, but they kept running. Systma turned around and came towards the officer, who again ordered him to stop.  But System didn’t obey the order and the officer used his Taser on him. He told police he hurt his left knee when he fell to the ground. Gonzalez also had a cut to his leg when he kicked out a window in the home.

The South Shore Fire Department took Systma and Gonzalez to Wheaton Franciscan Hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Police discovered $4,000 in damage in the home.
