Two arrested for Stoddard boat landing fee box theft

STODDARD, Wis. — Two people are arrested and accused of breaking into a boat landing fee box in Stoddard.

Vernon County Sheriff John Spears says a deputy found the damaged and empty fee box at the boat landing early Wednesday morning.

Using information from community members, deputies arrested 22-year-old Stanley Holte and 23-year-old Leah Morgan, both from Stoddard.

The suspects face possible charges of theft and criminal damage to property.

Spears says the arrests were made because community members were paying attention and reported suspicious behavior to authorities.
