    Waukesha County Sheriff Eric Severson and Waukesha County District Attorney Sue Opper, Chairperson of Crime Stoppers of Waukesha County, today announced that they are offering a reward of up to $500 for information resulting in the re-arrest of James Kadeem Ford.   Ford is known by his family and friends as Kadeem.

    Kadeem was serving a sentence for carrying a concealed weapon and was released from the Waukesha County Jail on Friday April 29, 2016 before his sentence was complete due to an error in the inmate release process.
    The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department along with the U.S. Marshal’s and the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department have been diligently searching the area since his release and have been unable to locate him.  

    If you have any information that would lead to the whereabouts of JAMES KADEEM FORD, you are urged to contact the U.S. Marshal’s 24 hour phone line at 414-297-3707 or Crime Stoppers of Waukesha County at www.stopcrimewaukesha.com.   All tipsters and information are confidential and may qualify the caller for a cash reward of up to $500.

    Trunk or Treat 3rd Annual
    Where: Waukesha County Courthouse Parking Lot
    From: 10/15/2016 1:00:00 PM To: 10/15/2016 3:00:00 PM


    Please join us for the 3rd Annual Trunk-or-Treat! The event is a fun, safe way to Trick-or-Treat for Halloween. Rather than going “door to door” through the neighborhood, children in their costumes go from “trunk to trunk” collecting goodies from volunteers who have decorated the trunks of their vehicles. Trick-or-Treat with your local police and enjoy fun kids activities, a raffle and a photo booth. There will also be snacks for sale. Prizes will be awarded for best costume and decorated trunk.

    Join Lola’s Hope and the Waukesha County Victim/Witness Assistance Program for a SPOOKTACULAR FREE event!

    Klement’s Racing Sausages will be here this year!

    Volunteers Needed

    Volunteers will be asked to open and decorate their trunk or tailgate and provide Halloween goodies for the Trick-or-Treaters. Although candy is the most popular item to hand out, other items such as pencils, erasers, chips, stickers, etc., are also great gifts. Some items you may want to use to decorate your vehicle are pumpkins, spider webs, spiders, brooms, bats, black cats, cauldrons, and other Halloween stuff.

    Please plan on meeting in the parking lot of the Waukesha County Courthouse by 12:30pm. That will give you about 30 minutes to decorate your trunk before the children begin to arrive.

    In order for this event to be successful, we will need to know how many trunks to expect. Please register by calling Kristi at 262-548-7908 or sending an email to Krysta@LolasHope.com to let us know if you will be providing a trunk or volunteering in general. Trick-or-Treaters do not need to register in advance.
