Hillsboro businessman arrested on outstanding warrants

A Hillsboro businessman, formerly of Oconomowoc, Wis., was arrested Dec. 30 on five outstanding warrants from Wisconsin, according to local law enforcement officials.

David C. Joch, 55, co-owner of Classics @ Olde Towne Restaurant, is currently awaiting extradition at Marion County Jail, according to Hillsboro Police Chief Dan Kinning.

The extradition hearing was Tuesday, Jan. 3, in the Marion County District Court, clearing the way for officials with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to take Joch back to that state.

According to Kinning, Joch was arrested without incident after an employee of Olde Towne Restaurant filed a complaint with the police regarding how they were being paid, Kinning said.

?The complaint was not related to any of the outstanding warrants,? he said.

As a matter of routine procedure, Kinning said Joch?s name was put into the computer for a background search. That?s when law enforcement officials discovered he was wanted in Wisconsin.

Marion County Sheriff Rob Craft said Wednesday an official with the Wisconsin DOC called to say they would be giving officials here 48 hours before taking Joch from the county jail.

Another agency has 10 days to pick up a prisoner after the judge signs off on the extradition paperwork, Craft said.

In addition to the criminal warrants, Joch has an absconder warrant, which is issued by a local government in the event a probationer or parolee leaves, or fails to report, to their assigned probation or parole office as required, Kinning said.

Along with co-owning a local restaurant and working as a cook, Joch was employed with Klassen Dairy north of Hillsboro. Joch and wife Kelly have been residents of Hillsboro for almost one year.
