Soybeans, trucks stolen by Geneva man

By Signal Staff

A Geneva man has had two felony charges made against him bound over to district court.
On Wednesday, December 12, Fillmore County Court Judge Michael P. Burns found probable cause to bind two felony counts made against Chris Ulmer, 24, of Geneva over to the Fillmore County District Court.  Ulmer is slated to be arraigned on the charges on January 15, 2019, at 9:30 a.m.
Ulmer, who is out of custody on a PR bond, is charged with Theft receiving stolen property over $5,000, a Class 2A felony, and Theft by unlawful taking, $1,500—$4,999, a Class 4 felony.
Court records indicate that on some time on October 26, a Fillmore County Sheriff's Office investigation alleges that Ulmer took a farm truck loaded with 300 bushels of soybeans from his father's machine shed.  Later that day, the truck was found rolled on the Sutton black top.  From there, the investigation alleges that Ulmer took a Dodge pick-up owned by Ronald Bauer.  Also during the day, Ulmer used a vehicle owned by Tasha Longbine of Geneva for transportation.
The truck and soybeans was valued at $3,600, while the Bauer pick-up was valued at $5,000.
In other court notes, three men appeared in the Fillmore County District Court on Friday, December 14.

Stover, 61, formerly of York and now of Milligan, entered a not guilty plead to three felony counts—Possession of a deadly weapon by a felon; Possess a deadly weapon while committing a felony; and Possession of a controlled substance.  His felony cases were scheduled for further hearing on February 12, 2019.
