An 18-year-old Wausau man will spend 60 days in jail and eight years on probation following a burglary conviction.
Investigators say Jonathon Kuy and two minor suspects broke into a home in Wausau in March 2012 while the homeowners were on vacation. The victims said the suspects stole several guns, cash, and electronics.
Six months later a similar break-in occurred with the suspects reportedly taking a 300 lbs. gun safe, cash, and knives. One of the teens told authorities the safe had been dumped near the Wisconsin River in Wausau, and one or two of the guns were also thrown into the river.
Kuy is also considered a suspect in the burglaries of three Taylor County businesses from Nov. 11 to Nov. 15, 2013. In those cases investigators says the suspects stole more than $60,000 in cash. According to court documents, as of Nov. 21, 2013 approximately $30,000 had been recovered. A one day trial has been scheduled for Nov. 13 in Taylor County.
The two minors in the case are not being charged as adults and their names will not be released.
In August, Kuy pleaded no contest to two counts of burglary during a plea deal with prosecutors. As result two charges of theft will be dismissed, but were considered during his sentencing.
If Kuy violates the terms of his probation he could spend five years in prison.
