A rash of burglaries across the Village of Mount Pleasant last fall was committed by two men from Illinois, one of whom is 28-year-old Nicholas Toth who is being held on a $25,000 cash bond.

Toth was charged Thursday in Racine County Circuit Court with five felony counts of forgery; four felony counts of identity theft; and one felony count of burglary. If convicted, he faces up to 66-1/2 years in prison and/or up to $115,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, Toth and another man are responsible for at least 11 burglaries over four months at various homes in both Mount Pleasant and Union Grove. In nearly every instance, the pair broke into a home and stole a purse or a wallet and keys then proceeded to use the victims’ credit cards and checkbooks for purchases at gas stations and to buy photos ordered by the other man. At one home, they also took a 9mm gun.

Police say that during the course of their investigation they obtained the other man’s GPS and cell phone. Technicians were able to match movements logged on the GPS with the dates and locations of crimes and to download photos off the cellphone of victims’ driver’s licenses taken by the other man. It wasn’t until a string of four crimes last December that Toth is seen in any surveillance videos or photos using stolen credit cards five times to buy high-end tools at Home Depot and to get videos out of a Redbox in Kenosha.

Text messages between Toth and the other man were found on the phone about keeping things on the “down low” and screen shots of news stories with photos of both, the complaint reads.

Toth remains in the Racine County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond and will next be in court April 28 for his preliminary hearing.
