The Waupaca teen who was arrested for taking a gun to school now faces additional charges.
Brandon D. Bellile, 17, is charged with felony bail jumping and theft as party to a crime.
His friend, Jade A. Weber-Marshak, 17, Waupaca, faces two counts of misdemeanor theft for her alleged involvement in the same incident.
On March 9, Bellile went to Wauaca High School with a handgun in his pickup truck. Although he did not bring the gun into the school building, police found it in the back of his cab after a friend reported it to the principal.
Bellile was convicted of disorderly conduct and illegal possession of a weapon by a minor on May 7. A felony charge of possession of a firearm on school grounds was dismissed and read into the record.
After his initial court appearance on March 12, Bellile was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond with the condition that he not commit any crimes.
On April 21, Waupaca Police Officer Diane Flatoff was reviewing posts on the Waupaca County Buy, Sell and Trade Facebook page when she noticed Weber-Marshak was selling two Skil saws. Flatoff thought that was unusual.
Flatoff contacted Detective Sgt. James Gorman, with the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office. Gorman then contacted Weber-Marshak via Facebook and said he was interested in buying the two saws.
According to the criminal complaint, Detective John Macadlo met with Weber-Marshak and Bellile at the Eastside Mobil Express on Tower Road in Waupaca, where he purchased the two saws.
Gorman contacted the owner of a Marion woodshop, who is Weber-Marshak’s father, and informed him about the saws. The woodshop owner discovered that in addition to the saws, a staple gun, finish nailer, hammer drill and screw gun were also missing.
Gorman questoned Weber-Marshak, who reportedly said she stole the tools from her father, sold them and used the money to buy food, fuel and cigarettes.
Bellile told Gorman he did not take the tools himself, but admitted to helping the girl sell them, the complaint says.
