Trempealeau County authorities have identified a suspect they believe is responsible for stealing thousands of items from front lawns and cemeteries.
Independence police searched the suspect’s house in Independence on Sept. 30 and recovered the stolen items, which are still being processed.
Police did not identify the suspect, who admitted stealing property in Trempealeau, Buffalo, Jackson and Pepin counties.
Some of the items stolen from cemeteries have been claimed. Police will notify homeowners how to claim property once it has been inventoried.
