Two teens were taken into custody after a string of burglaries in the Minocqua area earlier this month.
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office was originally contacted last weekend about a possible burglary at Whitman’s Resort in Hazelhurst. Officials responded and ultimately discovered three burglaries and additional thefts from vehicles had occurred in Hazelhurst and Minocqua over the past few weeks.
As a result of the investigation, an 18 year old from Minocqua, along with a 15 year old were each arrested for various crimes related to burglary, criminal damage to property, and theft, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Grady Hartman stated, “The cooperation of the citizens that report suspicious activity is greatly appreciated. This has assisted the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and the Minocqua Police Department in apprehending those responsible.
