A 31-year-old Sparta woman faces theft charges after allegedly stealing items from a residence in the town of LaFayette.

Police were called to a Cambridge Road residence June 23, where a bow, shotgun and gold wedding bands were reported missing. The residents believe that a person who once had a key to the house, Cassie Morgan George, was the person who took the items. Police received a tip that the items were pawned at an Onalaska pawn shop. Police called the pawn shop, which confirmed that George pawned the bow and shotgun, which were still in the store.

Police contacted George’s public defender in La Crosse, who said George had gone to Mississippi. Police hadn’t made contact with George as of Oct. 3.
