Sheriffs: Multiple Brown County storage units broken into


BROWN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The Brown County Sheriff's Department is investigating the break-ins at over a dozen storage units in the past couple of weeks.

They've happened at five different sites in Hobart, Howard and Bellevue

“There’s multiple items…some jewelry [and] sporting goods. In particular we have several spools of wire that were used in construction purposes,” Capt. David Konrath with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office told FOX 11.

Konrath says some of the other items that were stolen include generators, tools, and a slab of granite.

“It’s in the thousands of dollars. There’s some of the jewelry that was worth, one piece was worth $8,000,” Konrath said.

Konrath says the suspects are also replacing the locks for easy access.

“If they put a lock on it, it won’t be noticed as readily as a storage unit without a lock,” Konrath said.

Konrath says the department looked at surveillance video from the storage facilities, but there aren’t any suspects at this time.

Managers at the affected storage units say they are notifying their customers.

Konrath says if you have a storage unit, check the lock and make sure nothing was taken.
