Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

A Franksville man hired as a handyman was arrested after stealing $10,000 in cash Wednesday.

James R. Schneck, 37, was hired by the BP gas station at 7952 E. Frontage Rd. as a handyman.

Recently, the gas station had a lot of cash and money orders following local car auctions. According to the criminal complaint, the manager noticed $10,000 was missing from a box in the back office.

Schneck was caught on surveillance footage stealing the cash, and is being charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with felony theft in a business setting.
