Teens Charged With Burglary Make First Court Appearances
A pair of Ellsworth teens facing burglary and theft charges made their first court appearances on Thursday. Dakota Dunphy, 19, is charged with eight counts of burglary, eight counts of theft by unauthorized taking and two counts of criminal trespassing. Cory McMillan, 19, faces five counts of burglary, five counts of theft by unauthorized taking and one count of criminal trespassing. The teens did not enter pleas because they are facing felony charges. Detective Dotty Small said Dunphy confessed to stealing items from unoccupied camp sites along Green Lake between February and April. McMillan was arrested the following week. Police recovered a 1991 Toyota van, an ATV, and a shotgun during the investigation. Both men will be back in court for a dispositional conference on October 11th. Dunphy’s bail is set at $5,000 unsecured and McMillan’s bail is $1,000 unsecured.
