Two Implicated In 12-County Burlgary Ring

The State Attorney General says criminal charges were recently filed against two men 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. Daniel Frausto and Robert Miles have been charged in several counties including Fond du Lac. In addition charges are expected to be filed against others under a cooperation agreement.  Last year 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, the 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.
