A Jefferson City man has been placed on five years of supervised probation for pleading guilty in a tampering case from September 2018.
Timothy Todd Jr., 18, pleaded guilty to first-degree tampering and first-degree property damage during a Wednesday hearing before Cole County Judge Dan Green. A charge of receiving stolen property was dismissed by prosecutors.
Todd was seen Sept. 2, 2018, while driving a vehicle reported stolen Aug. 31, 2018, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement. Witnesses said they had seen Todd placing different license plates onto the stolen vehicle.
Authorities found the vehicle near the intersection of Rolling Hills Road and Plymouth Rock in Jefferson City. Todd was taken into custody during a later traffic stop on a vehicle Todd was a passenger in.
