Menomonee Falls woman accused of selling stolen car for cocaine

Woman, 32, could face almost seven years in prison

A 32-year-old Menomonee Falls woman was accused last week of stealing her fiance's car and selling it in Milwaukee for cocaine.

Michelle L. Leurquin was charged on Sept. 27 in Waukesha County Circuit Court with vehicular theft and theft of property (valued at less than $2,500).

According to the criminal complaint, Menomonee Falls Police were contacted by Dennis Lehn, Leurquin's fiance, on Aug. 4 about the thefts. He told police he left for work and when he returned his van, television and cell phone were missing.

Leurquin was found to be in custody at the Milwaukee County Jail. She told police on Aug. 5 that she had traded Lehn's television for cocaine, the complaint states. When the cocaine ran out, she traded his van for more. Lehn's cellphone was accidentally left in the van when she traded it, Leurquin claimed.

Leurquin could face almost seven years in prison and $20,000 in fines if convicted.

She is expected to make an initial appearance in court on Oct. 14.
