Arrest made in connection with serial burglary spree in southern Wisconsin

Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the arrest of a man wanted in connection with a series of burglaries in southern Wisconsin.

Raymond M. Sanchez, III, 37 of Footville, faces multiple charges in the case.

Sanchez is currently being held in the Dane County Jail and detectives are continuing to work to identify additional victims and to return stolen property to the rightful owners.

The investigation crossed state lines and resulted in the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen property.

Investigators have linked Sanchez to 21 burglaries of construction sites, UW Fraternity houses, retail businesses and storage lockers. Some of the property recovered includes numerous musical instruments from a Thanksgiving weekend burglary of the UW Humanities building.

Sanchez was taken into custody April 6 after a short pursuit where he crashed the stolen vehicle he was driving, according to a news release from the Dane County Sheriff's Office.

Moments before the crash, Sanchez had used the vehicle to drive through a locked garage door in a burglary attempt at Gander Outdoors near DeForest.
