Sept. 12, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – The Washington County Sheriff is investigating a theft following a wedding Saturday night at Fillmore Turner Hall.
According to the sheriff the couple from Newburg got married on Saturday, Sept. 9, and presents from the wedding were loaded into a vehicle.
It is believed someone entered the unlocked vehicle just after midnight.
The sheriff said few details are being released because this is an open investigation.
This is the second time within about a month wedding gifts were stolen from a vehicle during a reception.
Last month, August 19, in neighboring Dodge County gifts were stolen from a truck as a wedding reception wrapped up at the Mayville Golf Course.
