A 24-year-old Stoddard woman was arrested Jan. 11 after being at large for 10 days.
According to a news release from the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office in Viroqua, Leah Morgan was arrested by La Crosse police at 10 a.m. on Miller St., where she was last sighted Jan. 1 after failing to return to the Vernon County Jail in Viroqua.
She was allowed to leave the jail Jan. 1 on Huber work release privileges.
After she failed to return, Vernon County Crime Stoppers issued a public notice seeking information for Morgan’s arrest. That notice was published in last week’s Hillsboro Sentry-Enterprise.
Morgan had been sentenced Dec. 23 to four months in jail after being convicted of theft and criminal damage to property.
La Crosse officers executed a felony arrest warrant issued Jan. 6 by the Vernon County Circuit Court.
According to Vernon County Sheriff John Spears, information from both La Crosse police and the public helped lead to Morgan’s arrest.
