A 39-year-old Wauwatosa man is facing charges after police found him driving a stolen truck and having two other stolen vehicle at his house taken from area dealerships in recent months.
Marion Chavez Rockette Sr. was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Wednesday with one count of operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. If convicted, he faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Wauwatosa police pulled Rockette over on Oct. 5 near North 72nd Street and West Center Street after they discovered a Ford F250 he was driving had a stolen temporary plate on it. After further inspecting the truck they found it also had a fraudulent VIN number as well.
After doing further investigating officers found out the truck had been stolen in March from Apple Automotive in Waukesha.
Police then found a stolen Toyota Camry and 2009 Cadillac CTS at Rockette’s home. The Camry had been reported stolen in July from M&J Auto in town of Addison and the CTS was reported stolen in March from Husher Car Company in Caledonia.
Rockette is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on $1,000 cash bond.
