State Center man assaults juvenile at high school

A local man faces assault charges after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend's son at West Marshall High School late last week.

State Center police arrested Jeff Buck, 57, of rural State Center, after the incident at the school where he allegedly began hitting the juvenile as part of a disciplinary matter, said State Center Police Chief Jeff Bunn.

Buck became verbally combative with school staff and had to be escorted from the property, Bunn said. Police later arrested him at his home.

Buck faces a charge of simple assault and disorderly conduct, both simple misdemeanors. The student did not need medical attention. Buck made his initial appearance Wednesday. His preliminary hearing is set for May 28.

Le Grand woman steals $700 in food benefits

A Le Grand woman charged with fraudulently using an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card at several area stores turned herself over the weekend.

Dawn Kujala, 41, allegedly used the card to buy groceries at several stores around the county over several weeks, said Marshall County Chief Deputy Burt Tecklenburg.

Kujala used the card on three or four occasions, racking up more than $700 in charges, he said. There is some dispute as to whether the card's owner allowed Kujala to use it, but Tecklenburg said he doesn't anticipate the sheriff's office filing any more charges.

The arresting deputy contacted Kujala and arranged for her to turn herself over to police, whereupon they charged her with forgery, a Class D felony. She made her initial appearance Thursday and has been released on bond. Her preliminary hearing is set for April 30.
