Accused squatter is finally in court, cash bond ordered
space
A man accused in a case of squatting and burglary to an Antigo home in the fall of 2016 was finally in Langlade County Court to answer to the charges Tuesday afternoon.

Gregg K. Mitchell, 46, of Colorado is charged in two separate cases, one for burglary to a building or dwelling, a felony, the other a misdemeanor charge of fraud on innkeeper, non-payment.

Charges were filed against Mitchell in early January of 2017, while the alleged burglary occurred in October 2016, and the misdemeanor case dates back a full two years to August 2016.

Authorities were initially unable to determine Mitchell’s whereabouts and an arrest warrant was issued. He was finally apprehended in the area Monday, and appeared via video from the Langlade County Jail for Tuesday’s court appearance.

According to online court records, Mitchell is alleged to have made an illegitimate offer on a vacant Fifth Avenue home to local realtors and later was suspected of squatting at the property. A duffle bag was found in the basement and contained personal items with Mitchell’s name on them.

Both tools and beer were reported missing from the residence.

He is also accused of defrauding the Holiday Inn Express in Antigo in August 2016, as he told an employee he was waiting for his employer to provide a credit card number for his stay. He was given a room, but his card was declined the following day and he failed to return to pay.

During his appearance, Mitchell told Judge John Rhode he had been incarcerated in Texas the past 14 1/2 months.

Although Mitchell does have some family members in Wisconsin, District Attorney Elizabeth Gebert pointed to Mitchell’s transient lifestyle and Colorado address as reasons to believe he may disappear again, and requested a cash bond of $3,000 to secure his release.

Judge John Rhode agreed and also ordered Mitchell to have no contact with the alleged victims, the Fifth Avenue address, or the Holiday Inn Express.

Several other individuals made initial appearances in local court via video Tuesday including;

Kendee D. Lockaby, 45, N4304 County Rd. H, who was ordered to a $1,500 cash bond as she continues to accumulate charges. Lockaby now has a total of four open cases in Langlade County after a drunk driving and domestic abuse arrest early Tuesday.

Lockaby faces three counts of bail jumping in her new case, along with a third offense operating while intoxicated, operating without a valid license, second offense in three years, and disorderly conduct in a domestic abuse situation.

According to the criminal complaint, Lockaby is accused of throwing a glass at a male acquaintance at a town of Ackley home while intoxicated and leaving in his truck. She was later located lying in the parked vehicle and refused field sobriety tests as well as a blood draw at Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

Authorities were forced to obtain a warrant for her blood. She reportedly told deputies another man had driven her in the vehicle, but could not explain where he was.

Additional condition of Lockaby’s bond includes absolute sobriety, no presence in any establishment with a Class B Liquor License, no driving without a valid license, and no contact with the alleged victim.

Melissa L. Olson, 30, 840 Clermont St., was ordered to a $1,000 signature bond charged with a single count of possession of a controlled substance.

Olson allegedly took possession of a number of Alprazolam pills, a Schedule IV controlled substance, which had been smuggled into the Langlade County Jail by another inmate on July 13.
