Douglas County DA takes over police officer car theft case

ASHLAND, WI– Douglas County authorities have taken over the investigation into the now former Ashland Police Officer, accused of stealing a car.

Douglas County District Attorney Mark Freuhauf says he’s agreed to act as special prosecutor after Ashland County referred the case to him.

Back in April a car was reported stolen from Ashland.

Police recovered the undamaged vehicle and say surveillance video showed an Ashland police officer taking the car.

The officer, who still hasn’t been named, was put on leave and later retired

Freuhauf  says he’ll be looking into the case to determine whether to file charges.
