Two arrests made in Section Line Road "drug deal, armed robbery" case
|Two men were arrested as a result of a "drug deal gone bad, turned armed robbery" that took place last week.|
Terry McCluskey Jr., 22, and Shane Jacobson, 26, are both charged with one count of Armed Robbery, and three counts of Felony Bail Jumping, and one count of misdemeanor bail jumping.
McCluskey and Jacobson made initial appearances on Tuesday in front of Iowa County Judge Margaret Koehler. Representing McCluskey was attorney Peter A. Bartelt, and Curtis Jackson represented the State of Wisconsin.
On Wednesday January 8, Richard Severson, assigned to the Richland-Iowa-Grant Drug Task Force, was informed that Dustyn B. Sedberry was robbed of $100 in an apparent drug deal. The incident took place near 5013 Section Line Road in the Town of Dodgeville.
According to the criminal report, Debra Slaney called 911 at 13:31 as a third party reporter, giving information that a male subject had been robbed at gunpoint. After hearing radio traffic, Severson made his way to Harris Park. He met with Iowa County Deputy Guentz and Sedberry regarding the incident. Sedberry informed both officers that two men had pulled guns on him, riding in a Black SUV. The men were identified as "TJ McCluskey and Shane Jacobson." Sedberry also informed both officers that there was a third male who was sitting in the back seat of the black SUV. Sedberry had never seen the third male before.
Sedberry then discussed the incident at the Iowa County Sheriff's Office. He told Deputy Guentz that McCluskey asked if he wanted "any bud" over a Snapchat conversation, and replied requesting an eighth.
Sedberry informed the officer this time they would meet at Harris Park, but normally they met at McCluskey's house located on Walnut Street. McCluskey met with Sedberry at 1:20 p.m., driving a black SUV.
Sedberry stepped into the back seat-next to an unknown bigger set male. McCluskey was driving, while Jacobson was in the front passenger seat. He said that all three had bandanas over their mouths, but disregarded it because it was something the three men normally did.
McCluskey informed Sedberry that they would drive around the corner quick and then take him back to his car. Realizing that they were travelling farther down the road, he asked what they were doing, upon which point Jacobson pulled a gun on Sedberry demanding money from him.
When Sedberry refused, McCluskey also pulled out a gun. He told both McCluskey and Jacobson that he had a child to feed. He ended up giving them $100, and then got out of the car.
Sedberry told the officer that McCluskey didn't show him the product because he was demanding money from him. He also told officers that McCluskey has been known to steal from people in the past.
After being dropped off, Sedberry started walking until he found a house that belonged to Slaney.
Dodgeville Police Department Lieutenant Brandon Wilheim pulled footage from Harris Park, identifying a black Dodge Journey leaving the park at 1:20 p.m. Sedberry told the officers that it was the vehicle that had picked him up.
The vehicle was northbound on State Highway 23, headed towards Spring Green. Dodgeville Officer Blake Weier was called to watch McCluskey's residence, and found a brown Chevy Blazer, registered to Brody Randall.
The Blazer was identified as the vehicle found on Jamie Street after a robbery that took place in Sauk County. Weier completed a traffic stop on the Blazer, with Wilhelm and Deputy Mike Havlik also at the scene.
They found that McCluskey was in the back seat of the Blazer and was asked to step out of the vehicle. He had handcuffs placed on him and was detained in Havliks squad car. Matt Hauser and Randall were also in the vehicle and were also detained while Arena K9 conducted a drug search. After an all clear, Randall and Hauser were released and McCluskey was arrested.
Armed robbery is a Class C Felony, and if convicted both McCluskey and Jacobson face a fine not exceeding $100,000 and imprisonment not more than 40 years or both.
McCluskey's preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 24 at 1 p.m.
A $50,000 cash bond has been set for both defendants. The defendants must have no contact with Sedberry, no possession of any firearm, no contact with each other, no possession or use of any controlled substances without a valid prescription, and no possession of any firearm facsimile, toy gun, or any other item resembling a firearm.
