New Auburn man faces additional charges related to theft from Fort McCoy

Posted:

Madison (Press Release) - A federal grand jury in the Western District of Wisconsin, sitting in Madison, returned the following indictments yesterday.  You are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Justin J. Waterhouse, 21, of New Auburn, is charged in a superseding indictment with stealing property of the United States and three counts of selling property of the United States.

The indictment alleges that in February 2012, he stole night vision monoculars and gun sights with an aggregate value in excess of $1,000.  The indictment also alleges that on three occasions between February and April 2012, he sold some of these stolen items to other individuals. 

Waterhouse was originally charged in an indictment returned by the grand jury on May 30, 2012, with theft and one count of conveying without authority a thing of value belonging to the United States.  In February 2012, Waterhouse was a member of the United States Army.

If convicted, Waterhouse faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison on each count. The charges against him are the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, and Dunn County Sheriff's Department.  The prosecution of this case has been assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin F. Burke.
