A vehicle that was stolen from Green Bay was found in Sheboygan at 4 a.m. Dec. 1 after the suspect phoned the vehicle’s owner to inform her that it broke down in the northside Wal-Mart parking lot.

According to the incident report, the owner of the vehicle is Karen M. Brenneman, 51, of the Mather Street homeless shelter in Green Bay. Brenneman reported to Green Bay police that while she was outside of the shelter sitting in her car and smoking a cigarette, she was approached by a friend, 23-year-old Matthew Johnson, who lives at the St. John’s homeless shelter in Green Bay. Johnson asked her for a ride to the St. John’s homeless shelter.

Brenneman and Johnson had known each other for about three months and she considered him a friend. She told Johnson she would go inside and check out and then take him. When she returned, he was in the driver’s seat and told her to get in; she refused and he drove off.

Sheboygan County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Wal-Mart parking lot after they were notified by Green Bay police of the stolen car. The Green Bay police found out about it after Johnson called Brenneman on her cell phone to tell her that her car broke down and his location. Brenneman then notified Green Bay police.

Johnson told deputies that he was driving to a friend’s house in Milwaukee when he began having car trouble. Investigators found mud and fluid under the vehicle – indicating that he must have driven the car off the road. Johnson smelled of intoxicants, but due to the three-hour lapse between the time he pulled into the parking lot and when officers were notified and arrived at the scene, an OWI could not be pursued.

The vehicle was impounded and Johnson was taken to the Sheboygan County Detention Center, where a preliminary breath test was conducted. The result was .11 percent.
