The son of Madison's Chief of Police has been charged with felony theft in Milwaukee County. A criminal complaint alleges that 25 year-old Brent Wray stole more than $28-thousand from Milwaukee's Betty Brinn Children's Museum , apparently by entering fraudulent refunds and deleting payments at a cash register. The complaint states that Museum officials discovered in November that Wray had been taking cash on a regular basis, in amounts as high as $900, and that the thefts date back to 2006.
Wray, who was employed as an assistant manager at the museum, is the son of Noble Wray, a Milwaukee native who's been chief of the Madison Police Department since 2004. Wray could receive a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted. He's due in court for a preliminary hearing on February 2.
