A Racine man is looking at serious time behind bars after police say he broke into a number of homes throughout Racine County last year with a rotating group of friends.
Aaron Mianecki, 26, was charged Thursday in Racine County Circuit Court with four counts of felony burglary of a building or dwelling; three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon; two counts of felony theft with special facts; and one felony count of receiving property valued at greater than $10,000. If convicted, he faces 102 years in prison and/or $220,000 in fines. Because Mianecki is considered a repeat offender, a judge has the discretion to add more time to any sentence he might receive.
According to the criminal complaint, Mianecki is accused of breaking into 11 different homes during a burglary spree last summer and fall, including a resident in Caledonia and one in Mount Pleasant. When police executed a search warrant on his residence last September, they recovered over $10,000 in stolen merchadise.
Officers were able to identify many of the stolen pieces because of how unique they are: a pendant from a nationally recognized university; WWII medals; a safe; a centennial anniversary pocket watch from the Statue of Liberty and a state commemorative quaters book, the complaint reads.
She also had her initial appearance Thursday.
Both defendants remain at the Racine County Jail on $100,000 cash bonds.
Mianecki continues to be investigated by the Racine Police Department for his involvement in the heroin death of Glen Jaskulske last June at the Riverside Inn Motel. He faces first degree reckless homicide charges in that case.
