Holmen man accused of drug possession and car theft



Police believe that a Holmen man stole gambling proceeds from one La Crosse County tavern this month, and later showed up at a different tavern in a stolen car.


Investigators say 23-year-old Nemo Yang took two bank bags containing near $6,000 from Smokey’s Tavern in Holmen in early September. 

The bags reportedly contained money from pull tab sales and a poker machine. 

Yang also was stopped this week outside Castaways Bar on French Island for driving a car stolen from Trempealeau County. 

Police found meth and other drugs in the car. 

Yang said the car was borrowed from a friend, and didn’t know it was stolen.
