Columbia teen gets probation for stealing

A Columbia teen was placed on five years supervised probation for pleading guilty for her part in a series of thefts from cars in April 2013 on the eastern side of Jefferson City.

Susan Wengred, 17, was charged with one count of felony stealing. She must also complete 40 hours of community service as part of her probation.

She was seen in video surveillance at a local business fraudulently using a credit device stolen from one of the victims.

On April 30, 2013, Boone County sheriff’s deputies were involved in a pursuit with a vehicle after a report of shots fired.

The vehicle was the same used in the Jefferson City thefts and was owned by Wengred.

The vehicle crashed and a search of the vehicle resulted in numerous stolen items being recovered, including a Missouri identification card identifying Wengred as the owner of the vehicle. Stolen firearms and ammunition were also recovered.
