Today, October 24, 2014, in Muscatine County District Court:
JEFFREY ALAN WURR, DOB: 2/1/1981, of Atalissa, was sentenced following his guilty plea to Theft in the First Degree. The Court imposed a prison sentence of not to exceed ten years and ordered the sentence to be served consecutively to a prison sentence in Cedar County of not to exceed seven years.
The prosecution of WURR was the result of an investigation by the Muscatine County Sheriff's Office into the theft of a motor vehicle from near West Liberty, Iowa. Deputies learned that the truck had been used to travel to a truck stop off of interstate 80 near Atalissa where WURR and another subject attempted to commit a robbery.
