COPY-Man with history of vehicle theft allegedly steals semi

Eau Claire (WQOW) - A local man with a long history of stealing vehicles allegedly did it again last week.

Police say Brian Davis of Chippewa Falls stole a truck Wednesday in Lake Hallie. That truck was found in Almena where a semi-tractor was stolen.

A short time later a semi trailer loaded with 43,000 pounds of plastic pellets was stolen from an Osseo truck stop. A state trooper stopped the rig in southern Wisconsin after getting complaints about a semi swerving all over the road.  

Davis, who had a revoked driver's license and did not have a commercial driver's license, allegedly told the trooper he always wanted to be an owner-operator of a semi and had taken the truck with the intention of paying for it after he started making some money.
