WESTON, Wis. (WSAU) – Four men accused in connection with the Weston Church Burglaries have all received cash bonds in the case.
19-year-old Dustin Groff of Rothschild and 18 year old Colin Pfingsten of Rothschild are both being held on a 25-hundred dollar cash bond, and are being required to live with their parents and obey a curfew if bonded out. 18-year-old Derik Kraft of Ringle is being held on a $5,000 bond with the same conditions.
18-year-old Ryan Hull of Weston is being held on a $10,000 cash bond, charged with 7 burglaries and multiple counts of criminal damage to property and theft.
EMPD officers along with the Rothschild Police department and Marathon County deputies arrested the four men late Friday night and early Saturday morning, and searched several hotel rooms in Rothschild. They say they have evidence linking the men to the burglaries, including items taken from the churches. The items were going to be sold to pay for drugs.
The six churches hit were New Hope Community Church in Easton, St. Marks in Rothschild, Mount Olive Lutheran in Weston, Bethany Baptist in Weston, Highland Community in Weston, and St. Agnes in Weston.
