Jesse Wohlrabe, 28, Readfield, is charged with burglary, theft and criminal damage to property.
On Sept. 12, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Timothy Myers spoke with a man on North Water Drive in the town of Little Wolf, who reported a break-in at his home.
The man said he went out for lunch. When he returned, he found a blue Jeep parked near his home with the driver’s door open and a young girl in the back seat.
The front door to his home was ajar and the lock appeared broken. According to the criminal complaint, he found Wohlrabe inside his home, rummaging through his belongings.
The man knew Wohlrabe and asked him what he was doing inside his house. Wohlrabe said he came over and found the front door unlocked.
Wohlrabe then allegedly said he was going through some hard times and needed some help. After a few minutes of conversation, the man wrote out and gave Wohlrabe a check for $500. The following day, he discovered another check was missing from a box of checks inside his desk, the complaint says.
In February 2013, Wohlrabe was sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison after being convicted of burglary and forgery uttering in two separate felony cases.
While serving his prison sentence, three more felony cases against Wohlrabe were closed in August 2013, when he was convicted of three counts of theft, three counts of felony bail jumping, resisting an officer and possession of an illegally obtained prescription.
Wohlrabe was released from prison in April 2014 and has since been under extended supervision.
A warrant was issued Sept. 19 for Wohlrabe’s arrest.
