Superior, WI, (NNCNOW.com) --- Two people have been arrested in connection with a string of burglaries in Douglas County.

Jacob King and Dylan Swanson have been charged with 19 counts each of Burglary.

Last Fall the Douglas County Sheriff's office responded to a string of burglaries and thefts in the Gordon and Wascott areas.

Tips from people in those areas led police to the suspects.

"Social media, especially our Facebook page played a big role in that investigation and getting these two into custody" said Douglas County Sheriff, Tom Dalbec.

The two men are potentially looking at several years of prison time.
