According to court documents, Scott Lee Chamberlain, 44, of Kingsley, was an employee at Sioux City-based Klinger for several years.

According to court documents, between January 2013 and January 2016, Chamberlain took several pieces of property from the company, including a motor vehicle, a skid loader and other construction equipment, without permission and kept them at his residence.
