Two men convicted in theft ring in Wisconsin, two other states

SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - Two Minnesota men have been convicted in a three state theft ring that included northwest Wisconsin.  

A federal court jury found Lyle Carpenter of Hastings and Derek Benedict of Hugo guilty of drug-related burglary, bank larceny, interstate transit of stolen goods, and conspiracy.

Benedict and Carpenter were among eight people accused of breaking into businesses, and stealing medications and money from ATM machines.

Superior was among the places where the crimes took place between the fall of 2009 and February of this year.  

Three men and three women still have their cases pending.
