Possible Theft Stopped by Duct Tape

Stealing from a potential employer is just about the worst impression you could possibly make when filling out a job application,
but that is exactly what allegedly happened back in June at a forest products company in the Town of Hansen.

The suspect, 26 year old Timothy Cole, is scheduled to appear in court later this month for a pre-trial conference.
The owner says Cole entered his busniness back on June 20th looking to fill out a job application.
When the owner left him alone to fill out the paperwork, Cole allegedly entered the business owner's van.
When the business owner confronted Cole he is said to have become angry.
At that point the Wood County Sheriff's Department says the owner duct-taped the suspects feet so that he could not escape before police could arrive on the scene.

The owner told police that a wallet containing $100 was taken from his truck.
Cole is now free on $2,500 bond.
His is court date is set for July 26th.

If convicted he could face up to seven years behind bars.
