Burglary, theft arraignment

A second man has had multiple felony charges made against him bound over to the Fillmore County District Court.  The charges are a result of a multi-county break-in and burglary spree that took place last summer.
Dustan A. Hallows, 24, currently in custody and formerly from Kearney, faces 11 felony counts in Fillmore County.  On March 7, Fillmore County Court Judge Michael P. Burns found probable cause to bind eight counts of Burglary, all Class 2A felonies; one count of Theft by unlawful taking over $5,000, a Class 2A felony and two counts of Theft by unlawful taking, $1,500 to $5,000, both Class 4 felonies, over to district court.  Hallows is scheduled to be arraigned on these felony charges at 9:30 a.m., on Tuesday, April 10, in the Fillmore County District Court.  Four misdemeanor charges were dismissed.
Court records indicate that Hallows and William Dreessen, 39, incarcerated, allegedly broke into eight rural locations in Fillmore County on August 28-29, 2017. The pair allegedly used bolt cutters and sledge hammers to open doors of these rural shop buildings to gain access.  Once inside these rural farm shops, the pair allegedly stole power tools, a drone, firearms, ammunition, farm tools, computers and other hand tools.  The items were then allegedly transported to Holstein where they were recovered in an Adams County Sheriff’s Office investigation.
A Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office investigation indicated losses of $6,150 at a rural shop owned by Kurt Kleinschmidt in rural Grafton; $4,098.93 at a rural Geneva shop owned by Brian Nedrow and $3,943.21 at a rural Geneva shop owned by Wayne Broman.  Five more shop locations in rural Geneva, rural Shickley and rural Milligan were also allegedly broken into.
The Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office also participated in this investigation.
