A town of Superior man who was allegedly involved in a series of burglaries in rural Douglas County in December and January was bound over for arraignment Wednesday, Jan. 27, in Douglas County Circuit Court.

Jordan Jon Coombe, 19, faces five counts of party to burglary, four counts of party to theft, two counts of party to criminal damage to property and an additional count of theft, all as a repeater. Cash bail of $25,000 was set for Coombe and he was ordered to have no contact with the victims or his alleged juvenile accomplices, and not to use or possess a firearm.

The charges stem from two burglaries in the town of Dairyland; gun damage and the theft of LED lights at a logging site in the town of Summit; the theft of items from a shed at a town of Summit property; and two burglaries in the town of Superior, according to the criminal complaint.

The burglaries took place between Dec. 23, 2020, and Jan. 7. In a number of the incidents, locked doors were reportedly shot open using a firearm. Items stolen included guns, ammunition, an ATV trailer and $47,000 in cash wrapped in hair ties, the criminal complaint said.

When interviewed by Detective Matt Izzard of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Coombe admitted to committing a number of the crimes and said two teenage accomplices pushed him to do so. He said they used a shotgun to shoot out the lock at one property and a 12-gauge shotgun during another incident to shoot the tires on an ATV. He told Izzard that they used ATVs to ram a gate on one of the properties, according to the criminal complaint.

The most serious charge the Superior man faces is burglary. Each count carries a maximum penalty of 12 years and six months of imprisonment and a fine of up to $25,000. Coombe’s next court appearance was set for March 12.
