Wisconsin Men Arrested in Theft of 100,000 Diapers
FOX CROSSING, Wis. (AP) – Two Wisconsin men are accused of stealing 100,000 diapers.
The Post-Crescent reports the police allege the men stole nearly 1,800 cases of diapers — valued at more than $45,000, from a charitable organization that provides goods to families in need.
Authorities say the diapers were stolen during several thefts between January 3 and February 13 at a warehouse in Fox Crossing.
United Way Fox Cities CEO, Peter Kelly, says the thefts occurred as his organization moved its diaper bank to a Valley Packaging Industries facility. Both men are former VPI employees.
The Associated Press reports that the men, John Forbes and Jason Havel, were jailed and charged with theft, Wednesday. Court documents do not list defense attorneys, and both are expected in court next week.
Police say it appears the men stole the diapers to make more money.
