• Jenna L. Scott, 41, 219 Adams Ave. S.E., Madelia, was charged with two counts of felony theft including vehicle theft Monday. According to court documents, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office got a call from a woman on June 20 who reported a vehicle stolen for her boyfriend, the victim. A deputy told her to have the man come to the sheriff’s office to report the incident himself as he was the registered owner and his signature was needed. The man did not go to the sheriff’s office that afternoon and the deputy could not contact him by phone.

The deputy learned from a Brown County dispatcher that a vehicle registered to the man was recovered in Faribault County on June 17. New Ulm Police were not able to locate the man at a last known New Ulm address.

A deputy went to the man’s residence about the incident. The man was hesitant to talk to him and said he had poor experiences dealing with law enforcement. The man said he was trying to sell his 1998 Ford F150 that was stored at his brother’s residence and that Jenna Scott was interested in buying it. He said she accompanied him to his brother’s rural Brown County residence and told her the truck needed a starter for it to run.

The truck owner said Scott was to pay him $500 for the truck as is and she was going to pay him after her boss knew the truck ran so she could get an advance on her paycheck.

The truck owner said he got a call from his brother at 12:40 a.m., June 14 and was advised there were people at his residence working on the truck and they were there in the morning when he left for work. The truck owner said he tried to contact Scott and drove to Madelia to talk to her mother.

The deputy learned from the Faribault County Sheriff’s Office that the truck was left at an elevator near Easton before it was impounded as abandoned.

The brother of the truck owner gave a recorded statement that a man and woman were at his residence working on the truck in the morning and were gone as was the truck when he got home at 6 p.m. Scott was summoned to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 3.

The checks listed Robyn L. and James A. Bundy as account holders and totalled $879.29 plus $300 for service fees.

On Aug. 9, 2017, a demand letter was sent to Robyn Bundy and J. Bundy in Hanska. The loss analyst contacted Robyn Bundy who said she would pay the charges but did not do so and did not contact the analyst.

She was summoned to appear in court at 8:30 a.m., Sept. 3.
