Appleton City man arrested on felony charges

Timothy Wingard
On April 20, Timothy Wingard, 51, Appleton City, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with a class C felony of stealing a motor vehicle, a class D felony of resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony, a misdemeanor charge of driving while revoked/suspended - second or subsequent offense, and a misdemeanor charge of violating an order of protection for adult. Bond is set at $ $25,000 cash or surety.

The charges stem from an incident on April 19 in Appleton City when a St. Clair County deputy took a report from Deniene Wingard in reference to a stolen vehicle. She reported her blue 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier was stolen from her residence on South Beech Street.

During the investigation Timothy Wingard was named as a suspect and it was learned there was an active order of protection in place against him. It was reported a vehicle matching the description was traveling west on Burbank Street. Shortly after, a St. Clair County deputy observed the vehicle at Casey’s General Store and made contact with Timothy Wingard. He was advised he violated an order of protection by being at Deniene Wingard’s residence and took her car without her permission. He became verbally combative, resisted, and refused to comply with instructions given to him. He was taken into custody and transported to the St. Clair County Jail, Osceola. The Appleton City Police Department assisted with the case.
