Chippewa Falls man accused of spending money meant for charity on utilities and groceries

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – A Chippewa Falls man is accused of spending money meant for charity on things like utilities and groceries.

Nicholas Wiener was the treasurer of the Chippewa Valley Volkswagen Club (CVVC).

One of the events they sponsored, Dub Jam, was advertised as giving all proceeds to ‘Jacobs Camp’, a local camp for kids dealing with cancer.

Jacobs Camp said they never received the $3,700 they were promised in 2016 and 2017.

Further examination found other money meant for CVVC was deposited directly to refundable debit cards.. 

Police found those debit cards were linked to Wiener’s address, and were used for things like shopping sprees at the Mall of America and utility and garbage bills.

In total, they believe he stole more than $5,800.

Wiener is back in court in July. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.
