LINCOLN COUNTY, Wis. One northern Wisconsin sheriff's department is warning anglers about thieves targeting ice fishing shanties.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says it has recently received multiple reports of shanty thefts.

It's advising fishermen and women to take their valuables with them when they leave for the day because people are breaking into the shanties and taking ice fishing supplies.

The sheriff says propane tanks are a target, as prices continue to rise.
