Bethany Man Charged With Stealing, Set for Sentencing in Separate Case
Harrison County Courthouse, Bethany, Missouri

BETHANY, MO – A Bethany man has been taken into custody on a felony stealing charge stemming from an incident last February.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department issued an affidavit alleging 28-year old Wyatt Wigal contracted with the victim to construct a structure in Harrison County on February 22, 2022. The statement says Wigal accepted a check for $3,900 as a deposit and then cashed the check, but never started work on the property. In the eleven months since the check was cashed law enforcement says Wigal has not completed any work nor returned the money.

Wigal was arrested and taken into the custody of the Harrison County Jail.

In a separate case, Wigal is set to be sentenced in DeKalb County on Friday on a felony charge of receiving stolen property in which he entered a guilty plea last November, admitting that he retained stolen property with a value of at approximately $81,000 which he collected to construct a building in Amity in the summer of 2021.  The DeKalb County Sheriff reported that Wigal was suspected of stealing $17,000 from another customer in Caldwell County.

Wigal filed paperwork with the Missouri Secretary of State in 2020 forming Wigal Contracting and Engineering, LLC.

A writ has been requested from the DeKalb County Court to have Wigal appear for sentencing.
