String of Thefts in Waterloo Area

   Earlier this week we’ve reported on the arrest of four young Waterloo men, initially by DNR agents on Lake Greenwood, then yesterday we reported on one Grand Larceny charge on each of the four that alleges they stole a Jet Ski from a Waterloo location.

   Yesterday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Office released a statement indicating that the four are being charged in connection with a string of thefts in the Waterloo community. The report states that items stolen from residents there include various watercraft, fishing equipment and jet skis.
