A 27-year-old Crawfordville man was arrested July 25, 2012 in connection with the theft of a truck and trailer from a former employer in Sopchoppy, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum.
Eric Allan Wireman was charged with grand theft after Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office detectives received information that the property was stolen from the late Ernest E. Theurer of Sopchoppy.
On July 13, detectives responded to a reported unattended death and discovered Theurer as the deceased. Following his death, his property was entered into probate.
On July 24, detectives learned that Wireman, who once worked for Theurer, went to the Sopchoppy property and removed a Dodge truck and a fifth wheel trailer. The truck is valued at $15,000 and the trailer is valued at $20,000.
Detectives Nick Boutwell and Derek Lawhon traveled to Wireman’s home in Medart and located the truck and flat bed trailer in plain view. Detectives interviewed Wireman at his home and he told investigators that he had gone to Theurer’s home and taken the property.
Wireman was transported to the Wakulla County Jail on July 25 where he remains under a $10,000 bond.
