    Update: Stolen sled involved in deer incident

    A stolen sled was confiscated from the home of one of the three local men accused of killing the five deer in Waupaca County with snowmobiles, according to DNR Conservation Warden Supervisor Carl Mesman. 

    Two brothers, Robby Kuenzi (23) and Rory Kuenzi (24), are being held in the Waupaca County Jail in connection to incident. The third individual, Nick Hermes (22), was released on a signature bond today.

    The Kuenzi brothers are being held for more questioning in connection with the incident tonight, partly, because they had previous relationships with law enforcement, Mesman said.

    Mesman said the three individuals were arrested last night, after investigators received several tips about the brothers and Hermes' involvement in the incident. The tips allowed investigators to obtain search warrants.

    During the searches, officers confiscated several sleds and other related items that were used in the attacks. A stolen sled, believed to be damaged during the incident, was confiscated. The Waupaca County Sheriff's office is investigating the stolen sled.

    Mesman said it doesn't appear the men were intoxicated during the incident.
