Acting United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling announced on December 3, 2021 that a Milwaukee man was indicted for six carjackings in the Milwaukee and Oak Creek areas. Madison Tyler, age 20, was charged with six counts of motor vehicle robbery and two counts of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence
If convicted, Tyler faces up to 15 years in prison on each motor vehicle robbery count and a minimum mandatory sentence of seven years and up to life in prison on each charge of brandishing of a firearm during a crime of violence, which must run consecutive to any other sentence.
This matter is being investigated by the FBI’s Milwaukee Area Violent Crimes Task Force, the Milwaukee Police Department, and the Oak Creek Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Abbey M. Marzick.
The public is cautioned that an indictment is merely a charge and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
