MOSINEE, WI (WTAQ) - Two 18-year-old men face a total of 66 criminal charges in a two-month spree of burglaries and vandalism in central Wisconsin.
Sawyer Wirkus and Nicholas Nesbitt, both of Mosinee, face a laundry list of charges that has grown as investigators have continued to look into their cases.
Nesbitt is charged with 23 burglary and theft counts in Marathon County, 10 charges in Taylor County for theft, burglary, criminal damage, and vehicle theft, and one count of vehicle theft in Wood County.
Wirkus faces almost all of the same charges. He's charged with a total of 32 counts, and Nesbitt 34.
Nesbitt is due in court in Medford Thursday for an arraignment. Wirkus is not due in court until February 3rd for a status conference in Taylor County.
Authorities said the pair committed at least 10 break-ins this summer. Prosecutors said they also stole alcohol and weapons, along with vehicles.
