Juneau Man Gets Prison Time For Failing To Return Rental Car

(Beaver Dam) A Juneau man guilty of not returning a rental car was sentenced to five years in prison this week. Gregg Mitchell entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Theft of Movable Property in February.

A Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy was contacted by the Enterprise on Beaverland Parkway in July of 2019 after a client failed to return a vehicle. Mitchell rented a Ford the previous month which was scheduled to be dropped off the next day. When the deputy contacted Mitchell at his apartment, the 50-year-old said he returned the car several weeks back at the Madison airport.

Mitchell then refused to answer any further questions and requested a lawyer. Four days after reporting the vehicle stolen it was located behind Mitchell’s apartment building. Mitchell was also placed on extended supervision for three years.
