According to a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday in Kenosha County Circuit Court, someone called Kenosha Police to report that two people were having sex in a truck outside of a local tavern on 60th St in Kenosha. Upon arrival, Kenosha police located a truck that read “JAXX Construction” across the side and had Illinois plates. The vehicle was registered to Todd Liszka of Illinois. When the officer put his emergency lights on, the woman got off of the man’s lap and got into the passenger seat. The man told police that they were “just kissing” and not having sex. The officer asked the man for his ID and the man said he didn’t have it. He gave police a name that the officer ran through the law enforcement system and DMV records. He also told police that the truck belonged to his brother “Todd.” After the officer got the information back from the computer check, the physical descriptors didn’t match the man in front of the officer. The officer also smelled the odor of intoxicants coming from the man’s breath.
The woman handed the officer the man’s wallet and said she didn’t know why he was lying about his name. The officer found the man’s real identity by looking in the wallet and comparing the photo on his Facebook account.
The officer then ran the man’s real name and three felony warrants popped up out of Illinois. One of Liszka’s warrants was out of Dupage County, IL for a 2019 case of felony “Aggravated Home Repair Fraud – Elderly – Misrepresent – More than $500.” Liszka didn’t show up for a court date. The second warrant was out of Cook County, IL for felony “Home Repair Fraud” from 2023. The third warrant was from 2022 for the same offense. According to the Illinois probable cause statement, Liszka accepted $4,150 as a down payment to build a deck, but never bought the materials, started the deck, or communicated with the customer.
All three warrants were “body only,” meaning that he can’t post bond and go home, he must see a judge. The warrants were all extraditable nationwide.
Court Commissioner Keating gave Liszka a bail of $100,000 for the warrants and a seperate bail of $1,000 for an obstruction charge he got by lying to police about his name.
Liszka made Chicago 7 News after an investigative piece alleged he has been ripping off many poeple.
Lizka has waived extradition and will be transported to Illinois to face the felony charges. He will be brought back to Kenosha County at some point to account for the obstruction charge.
