On September 15, 2016, DrydenWire reported that charges had been filed against both Stener and Rose Peloquin, also of Siren, WI (see below).
The criminal complaints state that Peloquin had marijuana on her person at the time she was placed under arrest. Peloquin also reportedly told the investigating officers that Stener told her he had stolen laptops from the Shops at the Lodge.
