A Marathon woman was arrested today, charged with stealing drugs from a neighbor.
The victims and the suspect live at Galway Bay Trailer Park in Marathon. The victims said on April 1st, they let 49 year old Jodi Wagner into their home to use the bathroom. While she was there, the victims caught Wagner trying to steal prescription drugs from them.
They said several days later they left the home and returned to find 100 of the pills missing. Shortly after that, they received an anonymous hand written note. In the note the person apologizes, asks for forgiveness and asks them not to send the person to jail.
Deputy Matthew O’Neill responded to take a theft report and to investigate. He spoke with Wagner’s boyfriend. He told them Wagner admitted to stealing the pills. Deputy O’Neill then spoke to Wagner who was inconsistent in her statements. She said she is often under the influence of alcohol and drugs and does not remember what she does much of the time. She admitted the note was in her handwriting, but does not know why she wrote it.
Wagner was charged with burglary and theft and she was booked into jail.
