CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (WFRV) – The Clintonville Police Department is looking for a man with a felony warrant out for his arrest and a vehicle recently stolen from an 81-year-old.
According to a release, officers received a report of a stolen vehicle at a gas station on N. Main St. in the City of Clintonville on Sept. 20.
