Todd Liszka (32) of Illinois
(Kenosha County Sheriff)

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.

  1. Not that the guy didn’t deserve jail time for his past discretions, but he probably didn’t have to ID himself in those circumstances unless the officer had reasonable articulable suspicion that a crime had been taking place. Since he wasn’t a witness, he should have refused and taken any charges from there (if any i. e. Obstruction) to court. Cops just can’t go around asking people for their IDs just to “know who I’m dealing with”.

    1. If they were just sitting there, or even maybe sleeping there to sober up before driving and the cop just happened upon them, then you are correct.
      But they received a complaint and had to follow up.

      Either way though, you are questioning the legality of the arrest and that’s always a good thing.

  2. Probably unrelated but just tossing this out there. Remember the rash of home invasions in the town of Paris from 2020-2022? Most of the victims elderly, home alone, visited by a “contractor” who was there to discuss a furnace/gas malfunction (or some other issue)? Once inside the home, the second guy comes in behind and cleans out the valuables. Based on what the sheriff’s deputies and detective said at that time, and this felonious Illinoisian’s record, might be worth a second look.
