Seems as though both check cashing businesses robbed in Sparta and Tomah in the past week were connected.......and now an arrest has been made. Cops say shortly after the Tomah business was robbed Tuesday, cops saw a car on I-90 and the driver resembled the description from both the Sparta and Tomah armed robberies. It was then learned that the driver, 40 year old Boun Lee of La Crosse was currently on probation for burglary.
During the traffic stop items were found in the car which lead officers to believe that Lee was involved in the armed robbery that occurred in Tomah. During a search of the car, officers recovered several items to including a grey hoodie style sweatshirt, a black scarf, a Crossman BB style handgun, and cash consistent to the amount taken from the Check and Cash in Tomah. Additional evidence was located in the vehicle which links Lee to the armed robbery which occurred in Sparta.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin wildlife officials say hunters killed 110,298 deer during the opening weekend of the state's nine-day gun season, down about 18 percent from last year's opening two days.
The 2013 buck harvest was down 25 percent and the antlerless harvest was down 9 percent.
Department of Natural Resources officials say cold weather likely drove many hunters out of the woods early. They also noted the agency also issued fewer antlerless permits across the northern section of the state in hopes of growing the herd in that region, leading to a reduced harvest.
Gov. Scott Walker went hunting in Washington County on Monday morning. Just before noon he posted a tweet complaining about the cold and that he hadn't seen any deer. He gave up around noon.
