SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – A Campbellsport man is accused of stealing more than $100,000 worth of scrap metal from his former employer, according to prosecutors.
According to the criminal complaint, David Kramer, 56, has been charged with theft of moveable property from a Sheboygan business and selling scrap metal from the business to a scrap metal company in West Bend without permission and receiving cash personally.
The complaint said a few days after Kramer got terminated from Manning Lighting, he contacted the owner for a meeting. The two met at a coffee shop on Aug. 22. Kramer asked the owner to keep the discussion between them and stated that he had been taking scrap metal from the business for approximately one-and-a-half years. Kramer said all the money that he earned was placed in a box above the ceiling tiles in Kramer’s former office. Kramer stated that the money was a “slush fund” for paying miscellaneous expenses for Manning Lighting, the complaint said.
