TOMAHAWK, WI (WTAQ) - A former manager of a northern Wisconsin bus line and his wife are both free on signature bonds, after they were charged with embezzlement.
44-year-old Shad Harper managed the Tomahawk Bus Company, and his 46-year-old wife worked in the office until both were fired a year ago.
Prosecutors said the couple stole $90,000 from their ex-employer -- and they reportedly used it for synthetic drugs, groceries, vehicle repairs, and other things.
Both Harpers are charged in Lincoln County with felony counts of theft, financial card fraud, and identity theft. They waived the state's time limits for preliminary hearings, and further proceedings will be scheduled at a conference on June 26th.
