A Baraboo man refused to sign a bond after appearing in Sauk County Circuit Court on charges of burglary and bail breaking.
Jason A. Brilliott, 43, faces more than 26 years in prison and fines of up to $ 35,000 for allegedly breaking into Thunderbird Lanes in Baraboo.
In an initial appearance on April 27, Circuit Court Judge Michael Screnock set a signing bond of $ 2,500 in the case, but Brilliott refused to sign it in order to be released the same day. Screnock made the only bond condition prohibiting Brilliott from having contact with Baraboo bowling.
According to the criminal complaint, an employee at Thunderbird Lanes, 1117 Eighth St., Baraboo, called the police on April 20 after arriving at the company at around 9:30 a.m. and finding a damaged building door. A glass door had been smashed and bore leverage marks.
In surveillance footage provided by the bowling alley, officers could see two people wearing masks approaching the north side of the building on bikes around 5 a.m.
In the video, the two entered the business from the east side by kicking and smashing a window.
Once inside, one of the masked people points to a prize machine and the other pulls a hammer out of a backpack. The person uses the hammer to smash the glass casing of the machine and takes money inside.
