Man pleads guilty to vehicle part theft
Thursday, March 14, 2013
A Jefferson City man has been placed on four years of supervised probation for pleading guilty to two counts of felony theft for taking vehicle parts from two vehicle repair businesses.
Daniel Swanson, 58, 3024 Mercedes Lane, took parts valued at $500 or more from Al Scheppers Motors and Capitol Chrysler.
According to court documents, Swanson told both businesses he “was employed by Linn State Technical College (and) had the authority to place orders on behalf of Linn State,” which he knew was a false statement, but caused the businesses “to part with such property.”
The indictment said the thefts occurred Jan. 31 at Al Scheppers Motors, and Feb. 3 at Capitol Chrysler.
The stolen items were not specified.
A restitution amount for Swanson to pay has yet to be determined.
