Brian Boehler, 38, of Milwaukee, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s office on Monday with possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor retail theft. If convicted, Boehler faces up to 10 months in jail and/or fined up to $10,500.
According to a report by the Caledonia Police Department, officers responded to a call of Boehler shoplifting a copy of “High Times” magazine from the Mobile gas station, 13600 Seven Mile Road.
The officer searched Boehler and found a plastic bag with six pills: three narcotic pills, two prescription only pills and Intiniv, a drug the officer could not identify.
“Boehler advised it was stupid of him to attempt to take the magazine,” according to the report.
Boehler has had prior shoplifting and possession of illegal prescription arrests along with four driving under the influence arrests.
