WOODSTOCK – A Wisconsin man is in prison after he allegedly threatened to kill two Woodstock police officers, charged a RedBox video game to a stolen American Express card and stole two shotguns.
Treyveon Q. Ashley, 21, of Hayward, Wisconsin, faces charges of threatening a public official, facilitating identity theft, causing criminal damage to government property, possession of a stolen firearm, burglary, theft, criminal trespassing to a vehicle and possession of ammunition without a firearm owner’s identification card.
Woodstock police began an investigation Oct. 20 regarding at least two reports of car burglaries.
During the investigation, it had been reported that four firearms – including a pistol and three shotguns – along with other items, such as a wallet, had been taken from one of the cars parked overnight in the Applewood residential subdivision, according to a news release from the Woodstock Police Department.
The investigation is tied with charges against Maurice Timberlake, who Woodstock authorities arrested on multiple charges after he allegedly shot a gun and hit at least one house.
Police believe the two men were working together, as Timberlake had a shotgun and pistol associated with the firearms theft Oct. 20, Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb said.
Police found Ashley after he allegedly used a stolen American Express card to rent the “Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens” PlayStation 4 video game from a RedBox station.
Ashley is being held in the McHenry County Jail with bond set at $6,000, according to jail records.
