Authorities have filed burglary and theft charges against a Waucoma man, after a search turned up stolen property.


On September 25th, the Fayette Police Department executed a search warrant at 500 South Main Street in the city of Fayette. Evidence in that search prompted another search warrant later that same night in Waucoma. The Fayette Police Department and Fayette County Sheriff searched a property occupied by 34 year old Nicholas Olliney.

He was held in the Fayette County jail.

Authorities from the police department and county sheriff note that these are examples of local agencies working together, to create a safer community for all.
