Man gets 4 years for stealing from Wis. cabins


WASHBURN (WKOW) – A man convicted of helping to burglarize dozens of summer homes and cabins in northern Wisconsin has been sentenced to four years in prison.

According to the Ashland Daily Press, 30-year-old Eugene John Grahn has been found guilty of being party to the crime of burglary.

Grahn and his co-conspirator were accused of breaking into at least 24 homes in the winter and spring of 2012.  The co-conspirator was convicted earlier this year.

Prosecutor Craig Haukaas said he is satisfied with Grahn's sentence.  Haukaas also said Grahn cooperated with authorities and help locate many of the stolen items.

According to online court records, Grahn did not have a defense attorney listed.

Haukaas said people whose items are still missing can follow up with the Bayfield County sheriff's office.
