Four Fennimore teens face felony burglary as well as theft charges in connection with break-ins at local concessions stands this summer, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Grant County District Attorney’s Office.
According to records, Cody Brookhart and Kory Edin, both 18, and Cody Hall and Dillon Potts, 17, are each charged with one count of burglary to a building or dwelling, a class F felony, and one count of theft of movable property less than $2,500, a class A misdemeanor. None has entered a plea in court.
The four are accused of these activities occurring on June 23.
The Fennimore Times first reported June 30 that a burglary and theft had occurred at the Fennimore city ball diamonds.
According to Sergeant Joe Streeter, an attempt was made to break into the concessions stand at diamond one, while a burglar(s) succeeded in breaking into the concessions stand at diamond two. Some damage was found and items were stolen, although Streeter didn’t detail the items.
In June, Streeter also noted that the Fennimore burglary and theft were believed to be related to a break-in at the Stitzer ball park the same night.
The four teens are all scheduled to appear in court this month for status conferences, at which time the court will be informed as to how the case is proceeding.
A conference for Brookhart is set for Thursday, Nov. 17 at 8:15 a.m. in the second floor courtroom of the Grant County Courthouse. Conferences for Edin, Potts and Hall are scheduled for Monday, Nov. 21 at 11:30 a.m. at the same location. Jury trials for all three teens are currently slated for Tuesdays, Dec. 6 and 13 at 9 a.m.
