Grove City, Minn., man sentenced in swindle for faking aluminum can transactions


WILLMAR -- A 32-year-old Grove City man was sentenced Wednesday to 120 days in jail and ordered to pay back the $47,184 he swindled from the Kandiyohi County Recycling Center.

Gregory Donald Schake had been charged with four felony counts of theft by swindle for faking aluminum can transactions at the recycling center where he worked, and pocketing the money.

Schake pleaded guilty last month to one charge and the other three felonies were dismissed.
