Three Teens Sentenced to Probation for Burglary in Rubicon

Three teens have been sentenced to probation for burglarizing a friend’s house. Eric Wenninger, Zachary Mittag and Race Ranta were also recently ordered to pay $3100 in restitution. The three 17-year-old’s, and another minor, used a key under a doormat to enter a Town of Rubicon home and steal a computer, a guitar and several DVDs. They had called their unsuspecting friend first to make sure no one was home. When authorities started asking questions, the group drove into the country and ditched the stolen goods along the side of the road. Wenninger, Mittag and Ranta all had felony burglary counts dismissed and plead to misdemeanor theft charges.
