A thief from South Dakota, who was apparently hungry, failed in his plan to get away with the goods after he couldn’t drive. The failed caper happened near Postville. A Schwan’s delivery man was making a delivery in a rural area when he came upon 21-year-old Virgil Brownbull. Brownbull approached the driver and asked for help with an injury that was apparently faked. The driver helped Brownbull to an outbuilding, and then went inside to seek help from the resident. When the driver and resident came out, Brownbull and the delivery truck were gone. A trooper responding to the scene found the truck in a ditch less than one mile from where it was stolen. Brownbull was treated and released from the Waukon Hospital, and now faces first-degree theft charges. There was 80-thousand dollars in damage to the delivery truck and merchandise. Brownbull, who is from Kyle, South Dakota, was reportedly in the area for meatcutting training at the Agriprocessors Plant.
