Janesville Man Found Guilty For Role In Beaver Dam Storage Unit Burglaries

(Beaver Dam) A Janesville man was found guilty Monday for his role in a string of burglaries in Beaver Dam. Twenty-three-year-old Clayton Cartwright entered a no contest plea to three misdemeanor counts of Theft. Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Young was placed on probation for two years for his role last July while 58-year-old Melvin Lueck is scheduled for a two-day jury trial in June for his alleged role. Beaver Dam police were dispatched to Bill McCollum Way in July of 2019 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 admitted to his actions. Cartwright will be sentenced on June 24th.
