Eau Claire man accused of selling hunting rights to land he doesn't own

EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - An Eau Claire man is due back in court January 6th, after he allegedly sold hunting rights for property that's not his. 

25-year-old Andrew Martenson is free on a signature bond, after he appeared in Eau Claire County Circuit Court Monday on two misdemeanor theft charges. 

Prosecutors said a hunter and a friend answered an ad on Craigslist, and paid $500 to hunt deer and turkeys on about 30 acres in Pleasant Valley -- and a second hunter said he and a co-worker paid $1,500 to hunt with prospective sales clients on about 120 acres. 

Officials said the scheme was unraveled when a neighbor saw an unfamiliar person hunt on Daniel Arneson's property -- and the neighbor knew that Arneson did not allow hunters to hunt on that land. 

One of the hunters reportedly claimed to have leased hunting rights from Andy Jacobson -- and police said they later learned that it was really Martenson.
