WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Three are facing burglary charges after breaking into a family member’s garage and stealing then pawning their snowblower.
According to police reports, on Jan. 19, an officer was dispatched to the 2400 block of 5th St. South to report a burglary. The complainant stated that he was out of state for a period of time, and when he came back noticed that someone had taken two Stanley tool boxes, and a snow blower.
The complainant suspected that two of his family members could have stolen the items from their garage. Police soon made contact with 55-year-old Dennis Seif and 19-year-old Nicholas Seif, who admitted to taking the items from the garage, with intentions to pawn them in Nekoosa.
54-year-old Delores Seif was found to have pawned the snowblower and tools with Nicholas Seif, and later admitted to doing so.
If convicted, the three face up to 12 years and six months imprisonment and up to $25,000 in fines. Their next court dates are scheduled for June 12.
