Marshall man sentenced to probation; banned from Walmart

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Dean A. Meyer, 27, of Marshall, pleaded guilty in Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 9, to class C felony stealing in connection with thefts of more than $1,200 in merchandise from Walmart in September.

Judge Dennis A. Rolf, on the recommendation of Saline County Prosecuting Attorney Donald G. Stouffer, sentenced Meyer to a five-year term of court-supervised probation, suspended imposition of sentence, and restitution of approximately $400.

The restitution portion of the sentence is shared with two others involved in the thefts. As part of the conditions of his probation, Meyers is to have no contact with those individuals and is not permitted to enter Walmart.

According to the incident report, Meyer, assisted by an unnamed individual, gathered CDs, Xbox games, DVDs and a cell phone, took them to the patio area on the north side of the store, and then tossed them over the fence, where a third party gathered them and took the property away. Meyer said some of the items later recovered had been stolen about two months earlier.

The incident report indicates Meyer is a former employee of the Marshall Walmart.
