MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Three men, including one from Benton Harbor, are facing numerous charges after authorities say they are responsible for a series of burglaries and stolen vehicles in southern Wisconsin.

Nineteen-year-old Juriese E. Bell, of Benton Harbor, was among two others arrested Saturday after a vehicle they used to escape arrest by Shorewood Hills, Wisconsin, police was found outside a home in Madison.

Also arrested were 24-year-old Cleaster Moon and 19-year-old Stephon E. Williams, both of Madison.

The trio was arrested after authorities said they tried to outrun police. A juvenile was also arrested for taking part in several Shorewood Hills burglaries.

Moon is facing 17 charges, including burglary, taking and driving a vehicle without consent, theft and misappropriating ID information to take money in three separate Dane County, Wisconsin, cases. Bell is facing eight charges, and Williams is facing six.
