Statement from the Kenosha Police Department Regarding U-Haul Truck


By - Sep 1st, 2020 04:50 pm

On Aug 27, members of Kenosha Gang Unit received a tip about a U-Haul truck parked facing the wrong way on a one-way street near Civic Center Park, located directly across the street from the Kenosha County Court House and very near the dinosaur museum, which has been the target of several attempted arsons.

Kenosha Police, with U.S. Marshals assistance, approached the U-Haul to identify its occupants and investigate the vehicle’s contents. The occupants were detained by Kenosha Police and U.S. Marshals created a perimeter to allow for a safe investigation of the vehicle; however the situation quickly destabilized and the U-Haul was towed to a safe location where the investigation was continued.

After being questioned, the individuals were released. Upon further inspection, the U-Haul contained an amount of water and supplies, but also contained materials that are consistent with rioting.

This investigation is active and ongoing. Law enforcement has reached out Zao MKE church to return property; however, the church declined to speak with investigators and did not want their property back.

    Materials consistent with rioting? Maybe someone can tell me what that might be. Besides soup.
