Villwock Sentenced In Coin Theft

3/6/12 – A 62-year-old rural Mayville man will spend four years in prison for taking nearly $68,000 in gold coins from his brother last year. Authorities say they found a number of the coins at Robert Villwock’s rural Mayville home and that he’d sold about dozen more to a coin shop in Beaver Dam. The money was in a safe he took from his brother’s home. The safe was later found on Villwock’s property. After three days of testimony, it took the jury four-and-a-half hours last month to find him guilty of three felony charges including Burglary, Theft and Receiving Stolen Property. A misdemeanor count of Criminal Damage to Property was dismissed. Villwock was also sentenced to six years of extended supervision and ordered to pay restitution.
