Women Charged With Stealing From Dead Mouseketeer

Two Oregon women face felony charges for allegedly stealing a car and jewelry that belonged to a Mouseketeer found dead in April.

Wanda Garcia and Lori Declusin are accused of stealing original “Mickey Mouse Club” member Dennis Day’s white 1990s Ford Escort station wagon, the Mail Tribune reported. Garcia is also charged with taking a brooch that belonged to Day and selling it last July, days after he was last seen alive.

Declusin, 34, of White City, was arrested Wednesday and charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Garcia, 57, of Medford, was arrested on Thursday.

Day, 76, was discovered dead in his Phoenix, Oregon, home in April following a missing person investigation. A body found was confirmed to be Day earlier this month. Day was 12 years old when he started at Disney in 1955 and appeared on the show for two years.
