WAUKESHA - He's known as the "Bathroom Bandit."
Cory Feerick faces charges of stealing thousands of dollars of plumbing from local businesses.
After he eluded police for months, the I-Team helped crack the case, and he faced a judge on Monday.
Video showed Feerick in the act, according to police.
He reportedly stole $50,000 worth of flush valves from fast food restaurants, community colleges and universities in metro Milwaukee, then re-sold them.
The parts are valued at $400 each.
He appeared in court Monday on charges that he twice hit up the Arby's in Brookfield, and then the Pick 'n Save on West Capitol Drive.
When approached by TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady, he repeated, "No comment."
The TODAY'S TMJ4 I-Team showed video of Feerick during a "Crack That Case" investigation, and your tips led to an arrest.
Feerick's attorney said he's seeking counseling for a methadone addiction.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office is also investigating Feerick, and charges could come this week
