Two men accused in the Wildrose burglaries in Minden appeared in East Fork District Court on Wednesday.
Ryan David Hiltz, 28, appeared with his attorney Kris Brown on a charge of buying, possession, receiving or withholding stolen property valued at $2,500.
Brown told Perkins that negotiations with the prosecution are under way and asked that he set a Sept. 19 settlement conference.
Justin Reed Turek, 30, also appeared with his attorney, Derrick Lopez, who asked that a preliminary hearing in the case be vacated and a Sept. 28 date be set.
Turek is also facing drug charges in Arizona and was permitted by an Arizona judge to travel to Gardnerville on Aug. 13-27.
Turek was arrested on charges related to the burglaries in Minden the day before he was supposed to be back in Maricopa County.
Bail is $50,000 each for Hiltz and Turek.
They are charged with two counts of possession of a stolen firearm and possession of stolen property. In addition, Hiltz is charged with ex-felon in possession of a stolen firearm.
According to court documents, two homes on Wildrose were burglarized between Aug. 20-23.
Missing items included three firearms, jewelry, coins, cash and metal detectors. One victim's loss was estimated at $40,000.
On Aug. 28, deputies received a Secret Witness tip from a caller who reportedly heard Turek bragging about the burglaries and other details.
