6/11 Man Accused of Stealing Enchantment Electrical Cords Appears in Court

One of  the three West Bend men facing  criminal charges for allegedly stealing five thousand dollars worth of electrical cords from the Enchantment In the Park display at Regner Park in March, made his initial court  appearance Monday. Twenty two year old Nathan Wetzel, has been charged with felony theft and identity theft. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of more than nine years imprisonment. According to the criminal complaint, electrical cords for Enchantment in the Park were reported cut on March 24 at Regner Park. An employee at American Metal and Paper Recycling, who helped lay out and set up the electrical wiring recognized the electrical cords that were brought to the company to be sold as the cords used at Regner Park. Documentation from sales receipts eventually led to the arrest of twenty three year old Adam Ellis. Ellis is charged with misdemeanor theft. A continued investigation with vehicle and license plate information led to the arrest of Wetzel. Wetzel claimed  he and his friend Trenton Kalies took the cords from Regner Park three to four times and pawned them for cash.  Kalies is charged with felony theft and identity theft. Wetzel said they stole and sold the cords to support their drug habits. His next court hearing is June 25th with Judge James Pouros. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of more than nine years imprisonment.
