WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -

Investigators in Wood County have arrested three men and recovered more than a dozen guns.

They say the arrests solve a string of burglaries.

The three men arrested 27-year-old Tre Hiserman, 18-year-old Trenton Cwicklo, and 27-year-old Nicholas Leveque appeared before a judge via web-cam from jail on Thursday.

Prosecutors say charges will be filed in the next two weeks.

"These individuals for a long time had been committing burglaries throughout our county," said Thomas Reichert, Wood County Sheriff.

According to authorities, thieves have hit an area businesses and homes.

The first burglary is believed to be on May 24.

"We had an armed burglary in the town of Hansen where 14 both handguns and long weapons we're taken," added Reichert.

Next, a popular store got robbed.

"A convenience store in the Arpin area where a large amount of cigarettes, tobacco, and cash were taken," said Reichert.

The sheriff adds that a third burglary occurred in the town of Lincoln.

Reichert says a three-wheeler and a riding tractor were stolen.

Investigators believe the three men also were involved in a Marshfield robbery where some electronics were stolen, including a laptop, and some expensive headphones.

"We're very optimistic that we're going to be able to solve additional burglaries as a result of these arrests," added Reichert.

Other items confiscated by police during the arrests include cash, a few ounces of marijuana and prescription drugs.

A judge today set cash bonds for the three men.

The suspects do not have attorneys listed at this time.

The men are to return to court July 8.
