Tyler Peterson


Tyler Peterson was charged with burglary of a building or dwelling; jumping bail crime – new crimes; and theft by acquisition of a credit card.

According to CCTV, Peterson entered an apartment building two weeks ago, using a syringe needle to disarm the lock. Peterson was seen twice into an apartment on the top floor in the space of half an hour, starting again the second time with a portfolio. The victim was sleeping during the flight, according to the criminal complaint.

The stolen credit card was used at two gas stations and an ATM, with charges totaling approximately $30.

After responding to a complaint of theft at Menards, police located nearby Peterson, with the stolen credit card in his pocket.

Peterson, who was on bail and had a mandate from the DOC, has become “erratic” when he was arrested by police. Peterson said he was in possession of the credit card because “it was a matter of national security” and said he worked for the NSA and the FBI.
