Nov 2017 Newsletter – To Catch a Thief

Recently I ran across this unusual account of a theft in Carlton County, Minnesota. It’s not about the timber industry but I just couldn’t pass up sharing this intriguing story and, since we are all in the security business, it seemed to connect with our work anyway. The case began in October 2013, when county officials were made aware of allegations that a county transfer station employee was embezzling significant amounts of cash for more than two years before she was actually charged. Joanne Wappes worked at the landfill for nearly 30 years. There’s no way now to tell how long this had gone on. The interesting part of the case to me was that authorities found out about her theft from a man who had burglarized her home on two occasions. Read on for the details about the discovery and final conclusion to this case with all its twists and turns.Nov 2017 — It Takes a Thief to Catch a Thief
