The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announces that on November 21, 2017, Assistant State Attorneys Kyle Rash and Barbara Beasley presented evidence to a Bay County jury that Glen Alan Bradshaw stole property from his employer, Yesco Scaffolding, and later sold the property to a customer of the business after hours at the St. Andrew Marina. The prosecution called three witnesses to establish the case beyond a reasonable doubt. Captain Jason Daffin and Investigator Jarod Cutchin of the Bay County Sheriff’s Officer questioned the Defendant, who gave two different stories as to how he came to possess the stolen diamond tipped saw blades. Dealing in Stolen Property is a second degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The jury deliberated approximately twenty-one minutes and returned a verdict of guilty as charged of Dealing in Stolen Property and Petit Theft. Judge Michael Overstreet sentenced the Defendant to 55 months in prison. The Defendant had been released from prison in 2013 and had a lengthy criminal record.
