WASHINGTON COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man is due back in court November 14th, for allegedly breaking into two homes in Washington County and stealing valuables that included jewelry.

47-year-old Jeffrey Benson waived the state’s time limit for a preliminary hearing on two felony burglary charges.

According to authorities, Benson stole over $12,000 worth of jewelry on October 23rd – and he later sold it to a shop in West Allis which only paid him $1,200, or 10 percent of the estimated value.

Sheriff’s officials quoted Benson as saying he found the jewelry in a bag in Milwaukee while he was searching for scrap metal.
