A man from Grant County is facing
felony theft charges after an investigation
into a number of shoplifting incidents
at Wal-Mart stores in Prairie du Chien,
Viroqua and Richland Center.
Authorities say 19-year-old Ethen Gebhard
of Wooman is suspected of stealing about
$7,000 in merchandise alone, from the
Wal-Mart in Prairie du Chien.
Authorities also say their investigation
shows several other persons from
Grant County have also been linked to
the thefts. But their names aren’t being
revealed, because some of them are
juveniles. They’re also facing charges
of retail theft.
Gebhard is scheduled to make a court
appearance in Crawford County on
Friday morning (11/15).
