McNicol Jailed In Ice Fishing Shanty Thefts

7/27/11 – A Waterloo man who broke into several ice fishing shanties on Beaver Dam Lake will spend five days in jail. Cody McNicol burglarized the make-shift structures in early January and stole hundreds of dollars worth of fishing gear and related equipment. Authorities obtained video footage of McNicol with the stolen stuff. The 24-year-old pleaded “no contest” yesterday to three amended charges of misdemeanor Theft and had two other misdemeanors and a pair of felony charges dismissed but read into the record. He was also ordered to perform community service. A restitution hearing will be held at a later date.
