Beaver Dam Man Arraigned On Burglary Charges

10/13/11 – A Beaver Dam man entered a “not guilty” plea at arraignment yesterday (Wed) to charges that he burglarized a shuttered Dodge County business. 21-year-old Jonathon Schultz was charged in July of 2009 with felony Burglary and misdemeanor Theft after he and Robert Hanson of Beaver Dam were arrested in Washington County with spools of copper wire. Authorities there contacted Dodge County investigators who allegedly discovered more spools of copper wire in the back of Hansen’s pick-up. That wire had printed on it the name of a Town of Emmet business that had been closed for four years. Investigators then found the business had been broken into recently and the family says the cooper wire with the name of the business on it had never been sold to anyone else. Hansen initially denied the charges and implicated Schultz before confessing. Hansen was sentenced in Dodge County last month to seven months in jail and ordered to pay $3000 in restitution, plus another month behind bars for the Washington County offense. Schultz was placed on probation for the Washington County charges and has more court activity scheduled in Dodge County next month.
