According to police, Wolting stole the crane in September and drove it through fences and into light polices on Roberts Street. His 2-month-old daughter was naked and left alone in the same area.
On Thursday, Oct. 12, prosecutors were prepared to present evidence in the case, however Wolting waived the preliminary hearing and moved his charges to circuit court for a possible trial.

His daughter was put into foster care.
