Montevideo man alleged to have stolen vehicles, fish house
GLENWOOD - A 44-year-old Montevideo man faces multiple felony charges in both Pope and Chippewa counties for allegedly stealing two pickup trucks and a fish house during two separate incidents.
David Allen Anderson faces one count of felony theft in Chippewa County for allegedly stealing a Dodge Ram pickup truck and Ice Castle fish house from American Surplus in Montevideo April 7 or 8. He pleaded not guilty to these charges Tuesday.
Anderson also faces felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property in Pope County for allegedly stealing a man’s pickup truck April 8 in Hancock. Court dates on this charge have yet to be set.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Pope County, Anderson was arrested around 6:30 a.m. April 8 for motor vehicle theft from a Hancock residence.
Earlier that morning Anderson allegedly had gotten the pickup truck stolen from American Surplus stuck on a dirt road. He then allegedly went to a nearby residence and stole a man’s truck.
The man’s wife told law enforcement that she was awoken by someone in her home yelling. She then got up and saw their pickup, a 2003 Ford F-150, driving away. She said no one had permission to take the vehicle.
Law enforcement arrived on scene and found the stolen pickup truck stuck on the dirt road. The license plates registered as stolen from American Surplus.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Chippewa County, a Montevideo police officer was dispatched to American Surplus following the report of a stolen pickup truck and fish house, both of which were stolen April 7 or 8 while they were staged outside of American Surplus.
The Dodge Ram was purchased for $25,971 and the Ice Castle fish house retails for $24,000, according to the complaint.
A man at American Surplus told the Montevideo police officer that Anderson was there April 7 and talking about “stealing vehicles and a forklift in the past and that he would do it again,” the criminal complaint states.
