     GPS systems are handy for navigation.  However, a GPS system on a $70,000 stolen skid steer led authorities to a barn on Castle Drive in Taylor County.

     A construction firm in Boscobel reported that a 2014 Caterpillar skid steer had been stolen from a work site.  The dealer of the skid steer was able to track the unit’s GPS and it came back to the Taylor County barn where a host of heavy equipment was located.

The owner of the barn told officers that if the equipment was stolen, it had to be taken by Christopher Steig.  The barn owner indicated he thought Steig had purchased the equipment on Craigslist or got them from people he knew; the complaint said.

     Equipment listed included a Case 430 skid steer, a 16 foot hydraulic dump trailer, a jack hammer, an electric generator, a 10 foot snow plow attachment, and the nearly new 2014 Caterpillar skid steer. 

     Various pieces of equipment were reported stolen from sites in Wisconsin over a period of time.

Authorities from Grant and Richland Counties worked with Taylor County officers in the investigation.

Steig was arrested in Richland County.  Christopher Steig age 25 of Delavan, WI was charged Monday in Taylor County Court with 5 felony and 2 misdemeanor counts related to the alleged thefts.  His bond was set at $5,000.

     The same GPS technology which keeps us from getting lost may now reunite many owners with their stolen equipment. 


     28 year old Alexander Schneider pleaded no contest to 6 charges in Taylor County court on Monday.  Schneider is the Westboro man who shot at Taylor County deputy Chad Kowalczyk on September 8, 2013.  Alexander Schneider pleaded no contest to:  1st degree Attempted Intentional Homicide, Possession of a short-barreled shotgun/rifle, and 3 counts of bail jumping.  Those 5 charges are all felonies; he also pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of Battery.

     Judge Ann-Knox Bauer found Schneider guilty of the 6 charges due to the no contest pleas and read-in 5 other charges which were dismissed.  Schneider’s plea deal avoids his trial which had been scheduled to start July 21st

     According to the court records:  the shooting occurred after Deputy Kowalczyk went to Schneider’s home to investigate a female’s complaint that Schneider had sent her at least 16 text messages that day in spite of a restraining order.

Schneider shot numerous times with a :22 caliber rifle at the deputy, striking him once in the abdomen.  Kowalczyk has since returned to work.

     Following the shooting Schneider told investigators he shot the deputy out of “anger”.  Schneider went on to say “That guy’s just trying to do his job”.

     Judge Ann Knox Bauer has set a sentencing hearing for September 15th at 1 PM in Taylor County Court.  Schneider continues to be jailed on $1 million cash bond.


 The Medford woman who was accused of failing to provide food for her pet has pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge of failing to provide food for animal.  Callie Neuman pleaded no contest in Taylor County Court on Monday to the charge.  Two other charges were dismissed but read in.  Judge Ann Knox Bauer found Neuman guilty and sentenced her to reimburse the Medford Police Department for veterinary services in the amount of $105.30 and pay a surrender fee of $200.00 to the Humane Society of Taylor County, along with court costs.  The judge prohibited Neuman from owning any pets and may not be responsible for care of any animals.
