MEDFORD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Trail cameras are popular for photographing a variety of wildlife in the great outdoors. Deer, turkeys, bear, burglars. Yes, burglars.

Taylor County deputies released a photograph Tuesday showing a suspect in a January 8th robbery carrying items. It didn’t take long for several people to identify the suspect as 33-year-old Travis Hamm of Thorp. Hamm turned himself in to the Taylor County Jail at about 8:00 p.m. that same evening.

Investigators believe Hamm is responsible for the theft of tools from a cabin near Medford. The Sheriff’s Department released the hidden camera photos to the news media and social media sites, and they quickly solved their case.

The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office wishes to thank the public for their assistance in the investigation.
