Man charged in Troy Township gambling machine theft
Michael D. Moulster, 35, is free on a signature bond. He was ordered to appear in Walworth County Court at 1 p.m. Thursday.
On Dec. 29, a Walworth County sheriffís deputy doing a routine business check saw Moulster remove the machines from Jersey Tavern, W2852 County ES. The deputy obtained Moulsterís identification from his driverís license after the defendant told the deputy that he was a repairman, according to the criminal complaint.
The deputy was unable to contact the business owner to verify Moulsterís story, so he let him go, in part, because the defendant had a key, according to a criminal complaint.
The complaint did not divulge how Moulster got a key to the business.
The tavern owner later contacted the deputy, who was told no one had permission to remove the rented machines, according to the complaint.
