Illinois man fined for claiming Wyo. residency
SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - An 60-year-old Illinois man has been fined $4,170 for illegally purchasing resident licenses in Wyoming over a six-year period.
Fred G. Plambeck, of Cary, Ill., also had his hunting and fishing privileges suspended for six years by Sheridan County Circuit Court Judge John Sampson.
According to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Plambeck purchased or applied for licenses after he moved to Illinois in 2004.
Plambeck argued that because he owned a home in Arvada in northern Wyoming with a mailing address and paid property taxes, he remained a state resident.
But an investigation found he had not lived in Wyoming more than a month each year since 2004.
