Over the past couple of months, the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department has been investigating burglarized storage facilities. Recently, sheriff’s department personnel were able to identify multiple involved suspects. Two of the suspect identified were Zachary George (Age 31) of Petersburg and Brandon Mohr (Age 26) of Gays Mills.
On Thursday, August 19th, 2021, sheriff’s department personnel discovered George and Mohr in possession of thousands of dollars of stolen property. Furthermore, on this date, sheriff’s department personnel received information that some of the stolen property was being transported to a residence in Grant County, Wisconsin. The Grant County Sheriff’s Department assisted by locating and conducting a traffic stop on the transporting vehicle and recovered the rest of the stolen property.
As a result of this investigation, the stolen property was identified and returned to the rightful owners and George and Mohr will be referred to the Crawford County District Attorney’s Office for multiple charges.
These burglaries remain under investigation as other suspects have been identified and will be facing potential charges in the near future.
