LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Two Laramie men each face 30 felony counts in connection with a string of local auto burglaries and trespassing cases.

Codey Parsons, 19, and Justus Ochs, 18, await hearings in District Court after preliminary hearings were waived, the Laramie Boomerang reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/1lzpzWr). Dates have not been set.

The men were arrested Aug. 25 following a string of incidents dating to Aug. 8. They each face three counts of aggravated burglary and 27 counts of burglary.

Both Parsons and Ochs have public defenders. They remained jailed in lieu of $75,000 cash bonds.

According to a search warrant affidavit, Ochs was arrested after police found he possessed clothing and a computer tablet that he said he planned to sell for drug money.

Parsons, who lived with Ochs in a camper, told authorities he burglarized numerous vehicles with Ochs in Laramie, according to the affidavit. He allegedly told investigators the camper contained other items stolen during the burglaries, including throwing knives, an IPod and clothing.
