Two charged in robbery, home invasion
MONROE - Two men with a history of heroin use were charged this week in Green County Circuit Court with collaborating on an April 2011 home invasion and robbery in Monroe. Samuel Russell Schutte, 29, and William Johnathan Wilke, 39, are each charged with felony counts of burglary, robbery with threat of force and possessing narcotic drugs. Court records indicate they targeted the home in the 1000 block of 2nd Street North because Schutte knew one of the residents was prescribed Fentanyl patches, a prescription narcotic pain reliever.
