WYOMING – Authorities in Sweetwater and Fremont counties announced the arrest of two men believed to be connected with several burglaries in the Hudson, Crowheart, and Dubois areas.
Sweetwater County detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in Superior, WY last week and arrested Justin Ryan Chewning and Justin Everett Belcher, both Fremont County residents.
Sheriff Mike Lowell said the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a recent series of burglaries in that county. Items stolen included firearms, saddles, and elk, deer, moose, and caribou antlers. Some of the stolen items have been recovered, according to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office.
Chewning and Belcher are being held in the Lander jail. They are charged with Wrongful Taking or Disposing of Stolen Property. Their bond has been set at $50,000 each.
It is unknown at this time whether the suspects are also implicated in the break-in reported earlier this month of a Dubois Association for Recreation and Trails (DART) trailer parked on Togwotee Pass. Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Detective Dick Blust declined to describe the results of the search, citing the ongoing investigation.
