(Beaver Dam) A Juneau man was found guilty Monday for not returning a rental car. Gregg Mitchell entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Theft of Movable Property.
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 faces up to six years in prison. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Mitchell is due back in court on May 3rd.
