MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two men are charged in an alleged burglary ring that authorities say hit homes and businesses in 12 Wisconsin counties.

Twenty-eight-year-old Robert Miles and 37-year-old Daniel Frausto are charged with burglary and theft in Fond du Lac, Oconto and Outagamie counties, and Frausto also faces burglary, robbery and false imprisonment charges in Waupaca County.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports charges are expected to be filed in other counties.

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said Friday the burglary ring also operated in Winnebago, Dane, Waushara, Shawano, Portage, Calumet, Oneida and Brown counties.

Van Hollen says other suspects are expected to be charged in the burglary ring.

Winnebago County sheriff's investigators began an investigation in 2012 into a series of residential and business burglaries that had occurred over several years.
