Rhinelander High School investigating thefts Submitted: 12/27/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


RHINELANDER - The School District of Rhinelander is working with the Oneida County Sheriff's Department to investigate thefts at the high school.

Cash has been stolen out of the lockers in the locker rooms.

The sheriff's department says it's been happening throughout the school year.

But it isn't a completely new problem.

"Thefts from the locker room at the high school have been an ongoing problem for years. When the high school remodeled, they bought different lockers," said Oneida County Sheriff's Department, Lieutenant, Lloyd Gauthier.

"The lockers that were there prior, they were susceptible to be broken into. The newer lockers are very safe as long as the students use a pad lock that's given to them."

The department is hoping to prevent more thefts.

Deputies are telling students not to take everything with them to class.

"Do they really need to take a large amount of cash, jewelry or cell phones; things of that nature maybe could be left in the main locker where it's secured," said Gauthier.

"Think about where they're going to be all throughout the day and what they really need instead of taking everything with them. Maybe forgetting to secure those things and then they may come up missing."

The department isn't saying what was stolen because they're still investigating.

NORTHWOODS - Michelle Reiche loves spending Saturday afternoon with her kids and dog Dexter.

"Kids were catching frogs down the ponds down here and he was going down by them and he [Dexter] must have drank some of the water," said Reiche.

But that fun afternoon changed when that water made Dexter very sick.

"I ran over to him right away and he was just shaking like this," Reiche said. "I knew something was wrong right away as soon as I went to him."

The family took the dog to Central Wisconsin Animal Emergency Care Center in Kronenwetter. The doctor said Dexter most likely was exposed to Blue-Green Algae.

"They didn't think he was going to live," Reiche said. "They basically told us he was more than likely not going to survive. "
