LINCOLN COUNTY (WAOW) -- Two Merrill teenagers accused in a rash of burglaries that span across three counties made their first appearance in court on Tuesday.
17-year old Travis Dallman and 17-year old Dylan Graap were charged with burglary in Lincoln County court.
Authorities say a firefighter spotted the two teens, along with two other minors, breaking into a cabin on Sunday night in the town of Corning.
Graap and Dallman were arrested. A 15-year old boy and a 16-year old girl were also taken into custody.
But authorities don't believe this is an isolated incident. The four teens are suspected in a crime spree that spans across Marathon, Taylor and Lincoln counties.
Authorities say they are currently investigating the matter and looking at any possible connections, but would not give out any further details.
The 15-year old boy and 16 year old girl did not appear in court on Tuesday. Authorities say they are expected to be handled as minors in a juvenile court.
Graap and Dallman will both be scheduled for a preliminary hearing later this month.
Paul Kloos died after a manure pit exploded Friday morning, according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.
