Warrant charges man with counterfeiting, theftMarch 13, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Authorities booked a Knox County man into the Dubois County Security Center this week on a local warrant charging him with counterfeiting and theft.
Court documents indicate the case against Jason L. Wingler, 43, Sandborn, stems from an Oct. 8, 2018, call to the Jasper Police Department from a Daviess County apartment complex property manager who reported a theft and forgery.
The apartment complex property manager in Washington reported a drop box used to collect rent payments was broken into, according to court documents. A money order submitted by one of the residents had been altered, the “pay to” line changed to Jason Wingler and it had been endorsed on the back by Jason Wingler when it was cashed at a Jasper bank, it was alleged.
An investigation found Wingler had presented a photo ID when cashing the $715 rent check.
The investigation resulted in a warrant being issued Jan. 14 in Dubois Circuit Court that charges Wingler with a Level 6 felony count of counterfeiting and a misdemeanor count of theft.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department picked up Wingler in Daviess County on Monday and booked him into the Dubois County Security Center at 4:33 a.m. on the active warrant.
During an initial appearance Monday in Dubois Circuit Court, Wingler’s request for pauper counsel was granted and the court entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on his behalf. His request to reduce the $750 bond was denied and his next court appearance was set for March 26.
