Beaver Dam man sentenced to prison for Marco’s Pizza armed robbery

December 1, 2018

JUNEAU – A 35-year-old Beaver Dam man will spend the next nine years in prison for the March armed robbery at Marco’s Pizza on Maple Avenue in Beaver Dam.

Kyle Rach, currently an inmate at Kettle Moraine Correctional Institute, was found guilty in September of armed robbery charges for robbing Marco’s Pizza. He appeared before Dodge County Judge Brian Pfitzinger on Thursday who sentenced him to the nine years in prison and an additional nine years of an extended sentence.

The sentence will commence after he completes his current prison sentence in 2021. He is currently serving time for a 2017 court case where he was found guilty of misappropriating ID information in order to obtain money.

Rach fled with $111 from the Marco Pizza location on March 20 after threatening an employee with a gun and demanding the money from the register.

Rach has had multiple prior felony convictions relating to illegal drugs and property crimes, according to a press release from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office. Rach’s record spans more than 20 years including seven prior burglaries leading to several periods of lengthy incarceration in prison. Rach was released from his most recent prison sentence 28 days prior to the Marcos Pizza robbery.

“His addiction has made him an unmitigated threat to the safety of the public, and it is time to just lock him away to incapacitate him,” Dodge County District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said at the sentencing.

Klomberg had recommended a 10-year incarceration to commence after his current sentence ends in 2021.
