RHINELANDER - We know the name of a third teenager linked to a series of home break-ins in the Monico area.
Police list 17 year-old Jeffrey Stefonik of Monico as the latest arrest.
We showed the vandalism done to a La Crosse couple's vacation home in a story this past Friday.
Stefonik, 17 year-old Anthony Briggs, and an unnamed 15 year old juvenile -- all of Monico -- face charges related to burglary, theft, and criminal damage to property.
Oneida County Deputy Sara Wolosek says the license plate number helped out a lot with hunting down the burglars.
She knows timing is everything when it comes to preventing this from happening.
"With home security I found that if you make it difficult for people to break in, they're going to find a different place," Wolosek said.
They want something that's going to be easy and fast. Typically it takes four to five minutes to break into a home and if it's going to take longer than that, they're going to move on to the next one."
But a security system might not work for everyone.
Another form of safety is a care taker. That's a person who looks over your house while you are gone for a long period of time. Russ Sleight has been a caretaker for over 25 years.
"As you know up here, Northern Wisconsin sometimes the local authorities can't get there right away," Sleight said. "If you have a care taker or something that I do, I can be there at somebody's house usually 10 to 15 minutes."
If you would like to set up a neighborhood watch group, you can contact Deputy Wolosek at the Onieda Sheriff's Office. That number is 715-361-5100.
MERRILL - Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he didn't want to spend too much time at the Republican National Convention last week because he wanted to get back to campaigning in his home state.
The senator from Oshkosh stopped at the Lincoln County Fair on Saturday.
He faces a tight races against former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis).
Johnson gave a speech on Tuesday in Cleveland about national security, as he is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security.
He seems pleased with the Republican presidential ticket.
"I think it's really complimentary to the skills Donald Trump brings to the table," Johnson said. "You got Donald Trump with the private sector experience. You got Mike Pence with a real record accomplishment both in the House and as the governor of Indiana. I think it's a pretty good pairing."
He said he wouldn't pay too much attention to the speeches at the Democratic National Convention this week.
"They've got their ticket, we've got our ticket," Johnson said. "They'll make a bunch of promises they can't deliver on. And what we're going to focus on is economic growth, strengthen our economy so we can strengthen our military, so we can defeat ISIS and secure our borders."
SHAWANO COUNTY - UPDATE 5:13 p.m.--Police say six people, including children, were taken to area hospitals after two sport utility vehicles carrying Boy Scouts crashed in Shawano County.
