A 16-year old Mauston boy was taken into custody early Thursday morning, December 20th, 2012.  Mauston Police Chief Mark Messer said, “the juvenile was apprehended on West Avenue on the City’s west side after going through vehicles.  I’m asking any individuals who reside on West Avenue, Elm Street, Elmberta, Juneau, Pharo, Lemonweir, Wisconsin, and Division Streets to call the police department if you notice anything missing from your vehicles.  This would have occurred sometime between late Wednesday evening, December 20th, 2012, and early Thursday morning, December 21st, 2012.”

The Mauston Police Department is still investigating at this time, and is unsure if this individual is connected to any of the ‘thefts from vehicles’ that have taken place over the past several months.  As usual, please keep your vehicles and outbuildings locked.
