JUNEAU – One of the two men charged with two burglaries of the same AmeriGas station south of Beaver Dam stood mute to the charges on Tuesday.
The court entered pleas of not guilty on Anthony F. Kavcich’s behalf.
Kavcich, 20, 5434 Bauer Drive, Madison, was charged with two counts of armed burglary with a dangerous weapon, one count of burglary of a building or dwelling, two counts of possession of burglarious tools, three counts of criminal damage to property, three counts of theft of moveable property under $2,500 and one count of carrying a concealed weapon.
The second man, Joshua C. Travers, 27, E13715 Levee Road, Baraboo, was charged with two counts of armed burglary with a dangerous weapon, one count of burglary of a building or dwelling, two counts of possession of burglarious tools, three counts of criminal damage to property and three counts of theft of moveable property under $2,500. He pleaded not guilty on Feb. 21. A telephone scheduling conference is scheduled for Travers for April 5.
If convicted, the men face more than 37 years of incarceration each.
According to the criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to AmeriGas, N6344 Highway 151, at 1:32 a.m. on Jan. 18 for an alarm going off. Officers saw the two men running away from the station and later caught them attempting to hide in different locations. Both men had bags with tools inside with them. Kavcich told officers that he and his friend were going to drive to the AmeriGas to take propane tanks for his garage heater. He said they first went into Walter’s Gas Service. They used the crowbar to pry open the door and went in to find propane tanks. Kavcich said they then walked to the AmeriGas, they used a crow bar to pry open a window. When officers questioned Kavcich about a burglary at the same business in March 2012, Kavcich admitted that he and Travers had also burglarized the building then and had taken money.
A telephone scheduling conference is scheduled for Kavcich for April 12.
