Wulf arrested on felony theft charge

Andrew Wulf, 33, of Tipton was arrested Wednesday in Tipton on a felony theft warrant issued by the Davis County Sheriffs Department. Wulf is being charged with first degree theft and ongoing criminal conduct in connection with an investigation into thefts reported to have taken place between Jan. 1, 2016 and Jan. 9, 2017. Court records accuse Wulf of operating as a deer hunting outfitter in Davis Count and the surrounding area. As an outfitter, Wulf is accused of taking money fraudulently from several victims for guided deer hunts and not following through with services offered. He is accused of abandoning those victims and leaving them with nowhere to hunt or putting them on land in which permission was not granted for hunting without the proper permits or tags. Court records indicate Wulf received more than $10,000 total from multiple victims. Wulf is being held in the Davis County jail on a $25,000 cash-only bond.
