On 5/27/16 Racine County Sheriffs Investigators conducted an undercover operation in Western Racine County. The operation involved a 33 year old Kenosha County resident who was engaging in sexually explicit conversations with a subject he believed was a 15 year old female.
Through the course of the operation the suspect identified as Timothy E. Uksas made arrangements to meet with the juvenile in order to engage in sexual activity. Uksas traveled to a pre- designated location where he believed he was meeting the juvenile and was subsequently taken into custody by Sheriffs Investigators.
Sheriff Schmaling stated ” I’m very proud of the commitment and hard work my investigative team brings to these very intense and challenging cases. My office continues to make the safety of our children here in Racine County a top priority. I will continue dedicating the necessary investigative resources required to hunt down these sexual predators, and ensure that they are held accountable for there actions.”
Uksas was conveyed to the Racine County Jail without additional incident and is being held on numerous felony charges.
The investigation into this matter is ongoing and there is no additional information available at this time.
