A Lanesboro, Minn., man was given two years probation for driving a car through the fence of an impound lot, to get his own car back.
Benjamin Gjere pleaded no contest this week in La Crosse County court to charges of taking a vehicle without consent, and criminal damage to property.
Gjere was one of two people suspected of breaking into the Del’s Auto lot in Onalaska last November, because his Nissan was being kept there.
Police said the suspects drove a Porsche through the fence of the lot, in order to leave a hole big enough to remove Gjere’s own car.
Gjere is ordered to pay more than $7,000 in restitution to Del’s and to an insurance company.
