FLORENCE, Wis. - An Iron River man has been charged in Florence County with felony counts of burglary and victim intimidation.

Anthony John Cava, 29, faces one felony count of burglary to a building or dwelling, one felony count of intimidation of a victim, one misdemeanor count of theft of movable property, and one misdemeanor count of criminal damage to property.

If convicted on all counts, he could spend up to 22 and a half years in prison.

Cava is scheduled for a preliminary examination in Florence County Court on Dec. 4.

The charges against Cava stem from an Aug. 18 incident in Tipler, Wis.

According to the criminal complaint in the case, Cava allegedly broke into a relative's home and stole a flat screen television and a Sony PlayStation 3 video game system.

The items were later located at an Iron River pawn shop.

In October, a deputy from the Florence County Sheriff's Department determined that Cava and his family may have threatened the victims so they would not pursue charges.

In other Florence County Court action:

- James D. Fish, 36, of Dunbar, Wis. has been charged with one felony count of possession of marijuana-second and subsequent offense and one misdemeanor count of bail jumping.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of three and a half years in prison.

Fish is scheduled for a preliminary examination in Florence County Court on Jan. 14.

The charges against Fish stem from a Nov. 21 incident in Aurora, Wis.

According to the criminal complaint in the case, a deputy found marijuana in Fish's vehicle during a traffic stop on County Road B.

In addition, the deputy determined that, at the time of the incident, Fish was out on bond from Door County, Wis. for misdemeanor charges of battery and disorderly conduct.

- Zachary Eldon Brown, 34, of Flint, Mich. has been charged with one felony count of possession of marijuana-second and subsequent offense and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of three and a half years in prison.

Brown is scheduled for an initial appearance in Florence County Court on Dec. 18.

The charges against Brown stem from a Nov. 14 incident in Florence.

According to the criminal complaint in the case, deputies discovered Brown sleeping in a vehicle on Second Crossing Road. During a search of Brown's vehicle, they found marijuana and a smoking device.
