SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - A Howard’s Grove man is facing numerous felony charges, including burglary and escape, after stealing a trailer and attempting to sell it to an undercover officer on Craigslist. 21 year old Justin Hitsman was charged Tuesday in Sheboygan County Court after an undercover officer responded to a trailer for sale on Craigslist that had been reported stolen. Hitsman and the officer arranged to meet last Wednesday at a gas station in Howard’s Grove, where the undercover officer was going to purchase the trailer. When officers confronted Hitsman, he took off and escaped arrest. He was later apprehended after allegedly breaking into his aunt’s home, where he stole a Harley Davidson Motorcycle and over $5,000 in cash. He was arrested at a hotel in Plymouth after officers found the motorcycle that was stolen. If convicted on all of the felony charges, he’s facing over 40 years in prison.
