MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a former state Department of Natural Resources warden with multiple counts of theft and misconduct in office.

Online court records show Monroe County District Attorney Kevin Croninger filed the charges against Dave Horzewski Monday in Sauk County. A DNR statement said Croninger is acting as a special prosecutor in the case.

The DNR’s statement said Horzewski served as a warden in Sauk County until he was fired in July 2013. DNR officials found evidence of misconduct after Horzewski was fired and turned the investigation over to state Capitol Police. The statement didn’t offer any further details. Chief Warden Todd Schaller declined to comment.

Croninger didn’t immediately return a message. Online court records didn’t list an attorney for Horzewski.
