Beaver Dam Man Placed On Probation For Role In Storage Unit Burglaries

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man was placed on probation for two years Friday for his role in a string of burglaries in Beaver Dam. Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Young entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Burglary. Twenty-two-year-old Clayton Cartwright and 57-year-old Melvin Lueck are facing similar charges for their alleged role. Beaver Dam police were dispatched to Bill McCollum Way last July after a building owner reported missing $3,200 in various items. Five days later, police were again called out after a nearby storage unit was burglarized. The renter reported missing nearly $2,500 in different tools and batteries. Then, just two days later, another rental unit was broken into. According to the criminal complaint, Young and Lueck were named as suspects because the two were reportedly known to take things from the unit without permission. When questioned, Young and Lueck allegedly both conceded to burglarizing the buildings on numerous occasions. Young also implicated Cartwright who also reportedly admitted to his actions.
