Greenfield, WI - Greenfield police confirmed that Cory Feerick, 30, of Brookfield has been arrested for alleged theft. For several months, Feerick allegedly went to southeastern area businesses, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) and the Marquette University Campus to steal automatic bathroom flush valves worth thousand of dollars and then selling them for several hundred dollars as brass scrap. He stole at least 30 valves between UWM and Marquette University. 
A scrap junk buyer tipped police that Feerick had been supplying the junk yard with the valves. The scrap buyer saw a segment of Crack that Case on Today's TMJ 4 news cast and recognized Feerick. He then called police who later took Feerick into custody.
Feerick's charges are pending, according to Greenfield police.
