Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Illinois man is accused of dressing as a construction worker and stealing wallets from workers on site. The latest victim was in Eau Claire.

Donald Roche was charged in Eau Claire on Wednesday. He is accused of dressing as a worker and stealing a wallet from someone at the HSHS Sacred Heart construction site in August.
