Students charged with theft

Seven Wartburg students have been charged in the theft of chicken sandwiches that were stolen from Kwik Star west.

Taylor Hotek, Zach Smith, Kenny Anderson, Mason Simon Ressler, Shayne Olson, Nick Webber and Ryan Lutes have been charged with fifth degree theft.

Police said they are looking for three additional suspects in connection to the thefts on Oct. 12

According to Iowa code, fifth degree theft is theft of property that does not exceed $200.

The thefts happened on Oct. 15 and 12. However, the Waverly Police did not release their report until late last week.

All seven students declined comment. All are student athletes except Anderson, a graduate and former wrestler, and Lutes.

“The issue was addressed and handled by each program at the time it occurred in mid October,” Rick Willis, director of athletics, said.
