A crime spree in Dickinson County last week has resulted in 66 charges and that number may increase.

Undersheriff James Swisher said late Monday that reports were still coming in after vehicles were stolen, burglarized and damaged.

Alex Q. Madacs, 20, is being held in the Dickinson County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Swisher said another 19-year old Abilene male was taken into custody for questioning but was released pending the outcome of the investigation.

Between the hours of 10 p.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. Friday, six motor vehicles were stolen from residences around Dickinson County. An attempt was made to steal five vehicles and another nine were burglarized.

One vehicle was set on fire.

According to the sheriff, a .40 caliber handgun was taken from a residence and a 25.06 deer rifle was taken from a vehicle as well as numerous items of personal property.

The handgun was recovered from Madacs at the time of his arrest.

He was located in the 2600 block of Fawn Road near the burning vehicle.

Pending charges were for burglary, aggravated burglary, attempt to elude by engaging in reckless driving, criminal damage to property and arson.
