One of several men who allegedly targeted Adams and Portage County seasonal homes for burglaries will spend six years in prison and four years on extended supervision.

In October, a judge found 20-year-old Zachary Deyo, of Amherst, guilty of 10 counts of burglary for his role in a series of burglaries in fall 2011.

Deyo and several other men are accused of stealing thousands of dollars from seasonal homes and wire out of the machines at Wimme Sand and Gravel construction site.

According to the criminal complaint, the wiring could have led to workers there being electrocuted.
