Woman accused of stealing car
Security cameras, pawn shop records helped police identify a suspect.
Alexis Workman, 21, Clintonville, is charged with taking a vehicle without consent, felony theft and criminal damage to property.
On Friday, Jan. 26, Clintonville Police Officer Craig Kamke was dispatched to St. Martin Lutheran Church where a man told him his pickup truck had been stolen.
The man said his son had seen a woman take the truck.
According to the criminal complaint, surveillance video showed a woman in a dark coat walking on the sidewalk of South Clinton Avenue. She walks past the 2012 white Chevy Silverado, appears to look into it, walks past it, then returns and drives the truck away.
The truck’s owner had gone into the vehicle at 3:30 p.m., returned to the church school at 3:35 p.m. and it was stolen at 3:44 p.m. He left his keys on the seat when he left the truck.
At 10:48 p.m. on Jan. 26, the truck was found in a parking lot at Pigeon River Park.
The owner later reported tools valued at about $2,600 were missing.
On Jan. 28, Capt. Dennis Schroeder uncovered that Workman had pawned three of the missing tools at a pawn shop in Grand Chute on the day the truck was stolen.
Clintonville Police Officer Cody Rollin went to the Grand Chute pawn shop and recovered the items. He also obtained a copy of video showing a woman pawning the stolen items. Police identified her as Workman.
