Beaver Dam Men Connected To Burglary

6/1/11 – Two Beaver Dam men face a variety of felony charges in two counties for allegedly burglarizing a shuttered business. 20-year-old Robert M. Hansen and 21-year-old Jonathon L. Schultz were arrested earlier this month after Washington County Sheriffs deputies responded to a report of suspicious activity and reportedly found the subjects with spools of copper wire. They are charged in Washington County with felony Possession of Burglary Tools and misdemeanor Obstruction of a Police Officer. Authorities there contacted the Dodge County Sheriffs Department because the two agencies had previously worked on a joint investigation involving Hansen. When detectives went to Hansen’s residence, they allegedly found more spools of copper wire in the back of his pick-up. The wire had the name of a Town of Emmet business that had been closed for four years. Investigators found the business had been broken into and the family says the cooper wire with the name of the business on it had never been sold to anyone else. Schultz and Hansen are each charged with felony Burglary and misdemeanor Theft in Dodge County. Hansen initially denied the charges and implicated Schultz before reportedly confessing. He had cash bond set at $1000 while Schultz had a signature bond set yesterday at the same amount. Both have court activity on the calendar this month in both counties.
