iTunes Gift Card Fraud Awareness
March 04, 2018

Marathon County Crime Stoppers is providing you with information of a Fraud which is happening within our area.

 

The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office has taken numerous recent complaints from fraud victims who were asked to make payments using iTunes gift cards in exchange for goods or services. iTunes gift cards are preferred by scammers because all they need is for the victim to supply the 16-digit code after purchasing cards from a local retailer. This transaction allows the scammer to use a fictitious identity with no need to provide a mailing address, banking information, or legitimate form of identification. Please keep in mind that legitimate businesses generally do not take iTunes gift cards as payment. Be especially wary when conducting business over the phone, online, through email, or social media. For more information see Apple’s consumer warning at https://support.apple.com/itunes-gift-card-scams.

 

If you have information about who is perpetrating these frauds or have information on any other crimes, please contact Marathon County Crime Stoppers.  You may:

Cold Case Homicide
February 09, 2018

Marathon County Crime Stoppers is asking for your help to solve a cold case homicide from 1988.

 

On November 22, 1988, Brian Douglas Jehn's remains were located in a wooded area south of Mosinee, WI not far from Highway 51 in Marathon County.  Brian was last seen on September 23, 1988 at a bar in Wausau.  Brian was 38 years old when he was beaten to death.

 

Law Enforcement believes someone in the area knows the person or persons responsible for Brian’s brutal killing.  It is also believed the suspect or suspects may still reside in the area, therefore individuals are reluctant to come forward with information.  The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office will aggressively enforce laws meant to protect victims and witnesses of crimes.

 

We know this is difficult; however, Brian’s children have been living with the knowledge that their father’s killers have gone unpunished for almost 30 years.  Please look at Brian’s photo, and help bring closure to this case for the Jehn family and our community.

On Monday, December 18, a male was being disruptive by “farting loudly and laughing about it” during a Star Wars movie at Cedar Creek Cinema. He was accompanied by a female.

Theft of Dog
January 12, 2018

On Saturday, December 30, 2017, between 1:00pm and 4:30pm, someone stole a dog from a yard on CTH H north of STH 29. The dog is described as a border collie/Australian Shepherd/Lab mix and is dark brown in color with a white spot on the chest.  The dog’s name is Chloe and she is about 2 ½ years old.

 

On Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 4am, Chloe’s owner said she looked outside and saw a dog in the yard, but it wasn’t hers. Around 6:30am, when she went outside to see if she could find the dog, her dog Chloe came running in the house. Chloe was missing her collar and her owner believes that whoever took her may have seen Crime Stoppers from the day before and got scared about committing a crime and returned her. Chloe’s owner said she hopes the other dog spotted in her yard made its way home too.

 

The person who took Chloe is still out there and needs to be held accountable. The person of interest is a white female with glasses, medium to heavy build, and believed to be in her 30’s. The female was operating what was described as a white medium size sport utility type vehicle.
