RHINELANDER - Police arrested two men they think were involved in a string of tavern burglaries in Oneida County.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office announced Thursday that James Carl MacDonald, 30, of Wausau and Anthony Lamont Brown, 40, of Schofield, were both arrested after a traffic stop in Minocqua on September 2nd.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office has been looking into burglaries all summer. Those included several bars along Highway 47 in mid-August. The suspects broke into gaming machines and jukeboxes.
MacDonald and Brown haven't been formally charged at this time, but are being held on probation violations. Oneida County Sheriff's Captain Tyler Young says some charges have been referred to the Oneida County District Attorney's Office with the potential of more to come.
Young credited Minocqua police for knowing about the open investigation and making the arrest based on the information at hand in early September.
Three Lakes, Woodruff, Antigo, Wausau, Everest Metro, and Tomahawk police departments are helping with the investigation, which also includes the Vilas, Langlade, and Lincoln county sheriff's offices and the Mid-States Organized Crime Information Center and the state crime lab.
Young says the investigation could lead to more arrests. If you have any more information about the burglaries call 715-361-5100.
MADISON, WIS. (AP) - Madison officials say Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violated city policy by detaining at least six immigrants without letting police know ahead of time.
Madison Police Chief Mike Koval says the department has a working relationship with ICE, but the federal agency did not follow protocol. Koval says ICE has agreed to call the assistant police chief before making arrests in Madison. This time the agency called the Dane County Communications Center.
Koval says the arrests were made at separate workplaces and are not considered to be part of a raid. He says the community is in "hyper-warp distress mode."
Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says ICE told city officials the people arrested are believed to have committed serious crimes, but he does not know the specifics of the investigation.
