Two Baraboo men are in custody after a three-month investigation into numerous area burglaries, authorities said Friday.

Chance D. Pagel, 31, and Andrew J. Hartman, 45, both stand charged with burglary.

According to a press release from the Sauk County Sheriff’s Department, investigators believe they took jewelry, chain saws, power tools and lawn equipment from area properties. Additional charges are likely as the investigation — which also involved the Baraboo and Wisconsin Dells police departments as well as the Sauk County Drug Task Force — continues, the release states.

Anyone with information about these or other crimes in the area is encouraged to call Sauk County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-847-7285. Callers may be eligible for cash rewards and can remain anonymous.
