Two Suspects Charged in Multi-County Burglary Ring Investigation

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has announced that criminal charges have been filed against two men, Daniel Frausto and Robert Miles, suspected of operating a burglary ring spanning twelve counties, including: Winnebago, Outagamie, Dane, Waupaca, Waushara, Shawano, Portage, Calumet, Oconto, Oneida, Brown and Fond du Lac.

 

Frausto and Miles have been charged in several counties (Fond du Lac, Oconto, Outagamie and Waupaca).  In addition, charges are expected to be filed against others under a cooperation agreement.

 

In 2012, investigators with the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department began an investigation into a series of residential and business burglaries throughout several years. In cooperation with local law enforcement and the Wisconsin Department of Justice -- Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the Winnebago County-led investigation uncovered an organized burglary ring that had committed burglaries in 12 counties. The ring targeted certain individuals and businesses, and the crimes included several home invasions, false imprisonment and a shooting.
