No charges in alleged theft of road salt
No criminal charges will be filed in the allegations that salt was stolen from the Juneau County Highway Department’s storage shed in Necedah. Juneau County Sheriff Brent Oleson said, “An outside agency, the Tomah Police Department, agreed to investigate the incident. Following the investigation, the report was forwarded to the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office for review and late last week, Monroe County District Attorney Dan Cary, who was acting as a designated special prosecutor, advised that his Office would not be filing criminal charges in the matter.” On February 6, 2013 the Juneau County Sheriff ‘s Office had received the initial complaint of an alleged theft of road salt at the Highway Department’s shed in Necedah. “The Juneau County deputy made contact with the subject who had taken the salt and was advised that there was prior permission granted to take the salt. However, it was later questioned whether permission was actually granted. That’s when the Tomah PD agreed to investigate the incident,” said Sheriff Oleson. But Sheriff Oleson said in the News Release, “an internal review of the matter will be conducted by County Officials.”
