Burglary suspects set to enter pleas
After months in custody, two men suspected of hundreds of vehicle burglaries in Northern Nevada are set to enter pleas to their alleged Douglas County crimes.
Bryan Gaudette, 24, of Dayton is to appear Feb. 8 before District Judge Dave Gamble. He waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday in East Fork Justice Court.
Gaudette is charged with three counts of burglary with a deadly weapon, four counts of burglary and four counts of possession of stolen property.
Co-defendant Andrue Madden, 24, of Carson City, is to appear before Judge Tom Perkins this morning in East Fork Justice Court.
He is charged with four counts of residential burglary, burglary, burglary with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit burglary. He is expected to waive his preliminary hearing and proceed to district court.
Since the crimes allegedly took place in Carson City and Douglas County, attorneys have negotiated for settlements to cover all jurisdictions.
The suspects waived their rights to speedy proceedings while lawyers worked on negotiations.
Gaudette was arrested in July and Madden in October when he was extradited from Washington state.
Authorities believe Madden and Gaudette were involved in hundreds of vehicle burglaries between May and July, with at least 20 vehicle burglaries and two residential burglaries in Johnson Lane and Genoa.
Madden told deputies he and his partner would enter the neighborhoods between midnight and 4 a.m. The pair would allegedly enter unlocked vehicles looking for electronics and other valuables, according to the documents in the East Fork Justice Court file.
The burglary with a deadly weapon charge stems from the theft of a shotgun and a handgun from a home on Kinsey Lane in Genoa.
Authorities believe Madden was involved in burglaries on Bridle Way, Voight Canyon, Cloud Burst, Pioneer Trail, and Wild Rye Court.
Madden was already being held on two burglary charges after he was extradited from Washington state.
