CRIME AND COURT ROUNDUP: Former La Crosse Police Lieutenant gets three months jail for stealing drugs
Former La Crosse Police Lieutenant Brian Thomson will spend three months in jail for stealing and taking drugs that officers seized as evidence. Visiting Judge Todd Ziegler also sentenced the 44-year-old Thomson yesterday to three months under electronic monitoring, as part of a three-year probation term. Ziegler said Thomson put a "black eye" on the La Crosse police force and betrayed the public's trust. He admitted stealing and using meth-amphetamines three times.
