Max Adrian, 33, of Racine, was charged with one felony count of theft-movable property. If Adrian is found guilty, he faces up to 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $10,000.
According to the criminal complaint, Caledonia Police responded to a theft report from a home in the 5900 block of Bel Mar Avenue on April 5. The homeowner told police that she was missing a gold bracelet valued at $7,250 and that she believed Adrian had taken it.
The homeowner’s caregiver told police that Adrian went into the bathroom on March 21 and March 28. During the investigation, police learned that Adrian sold the jewelry to a pawn shop in Racine.
Adrian initially told police that the bracelet was his grandfathers, but then said that he sells jewelry that a friend buys from storage lockers and later told police that he was back on drugs.
Adrian is being held at the Racine County Jail on a cash bond of $25,000. A preliminary hearing has been set at 9 a.m. May 14 in Racine County Felony Court.
