Two in court to face multiple charges connected to vandalism in Sun Prairie

MADISON (WKOW) — Two men were charged in Dane County Court Thursday morning for multiple acts of vandalism in Sun Prairie totaling $95,000 of damages.

Samuel R. Keuler and Riley P. Frentzel, both 21, from Sun Prairie were charged with four felony counts of criminal damage to property and two misdemeanors for graffiti, according to a criminal complaint.

A judged ordered a signature bond for both men.

The two men were barred from having any contact with each other, online court records show. They were also prohibited from going to the Sun Prairie Aquatic Center, the Full Mile Beer Company or the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department — the targets of the alleged vandalism.

Police say that on May 8 and May 15, the two men broke windows, tossed furniture out of structures from upper floors and caused $30,000 worth of vandalism at the Sun Prairie Fire Department’s training center.

Investigators say Keuler and Frentzel damaged park slides and buildings at the Sun Prairie Aquatic Center, located at 920 Linnerud Dr. in September of 2018. The damage was estimated at over $15,000, according to an earlier news release from police.

The investigation also revealed that Keuler and Frentzel were responsible for significant damage done to the construction site for Full Mile Brewing Company located at 132 Market St. in the fall of 2018. The damage consisted of broken piping and walls within the business. The damage was estimated at $50,000.

The two next come up for a status conference on July 29.
