Sentence Handed Down for Ace Hardware Robbers

It’s probation for the two people who faked an armed robbery at the Ace Hardware in Rice Lake.

A judge yesterday sentenced Jesus Miera from Chippewa Falls, and Krista Buckwalter from Rice Lake for the robbery at Jacobson’s Ace Hardware  back in 2022. Buckwalter worked at the store, and police say she and Miera cooked-up a scheme where he would come in and rob her. Investigators say they found a flurry of phone calls between the two just before the robbery. In addition to their probation, the judge ordered Buckwalter and Miera to repay the 14-hundred dollars they stole.
