AG's Office Indicts Man on Scheme to Steal Copy Machines

(MONTGOMERY)-Attorney General Troy King announced the indictment of Stanley Amos Boone for multiple charges of theft involving a scheme to steal copy machines from victims throughout Alabama.  The Attorney General's Office has presented evidence to grand juries, resulting in Boone's indictment* on multiple charges in Montgomery, Randolph and Chambers counties.  Boone, 45, of Auburn, was previously arrested on a warrant, and has received notice of all of the aforementioned indictments. 

"The charges against this defendant constitute a pattern of alleged thefts across our state from victims that include a church, a funeral home and a trucking company," said Attorney General King.  "As Attorney General, it is my responsibility to protect our citizens, our houses of worship, and businesses from those who would steal from them.  My office will meet this responsibility, through these indictments and any others that prove necessary to defend against crime and fraud in our state."

The most recent indictment was returned yesterday, and Boone subsequently received notice from an agent of Attorney General King's office.  On January 31, the Attorney General's Office presented evidence to a Randolph County grand jury, resulting in an indictment returned today that charges Boone with five counts of first-degree theft.  Each count charges Boone with theft of a copy machine valued at more than $2,500 from Kelly Trucking, a business that is now known as Eagle Logistics.

On February 1, Attorney General King's Office presented evidence to a Chambers County grand jury, resulting in Boone's indictment on that day for one count of second-degree theft of a copy machine valued at more than $500 from Vines Funeral Home.  On February 5, an agent of Attorney General King's office notified Boone of this indictment.

On January 18, Attorney General King's Office presented evidence to a Montgomery County grand jury, resulting that day in a two-count indictment against Boone. Each count charges Boone with first-degree theft of a copy machine valued at more than $2,500 from Carriage Hills Church of Christ, also known as Grace Pointe Church of Christ.  Boone received notice of this indictment on January 28, and had previously been arrested on a warrant on August 28, 2007.  

No further information about the investigation or about Boone's alleged crimes other than that stated in the indictments may be released at this time.

If convicted, Boone faces a maximum penalty of two to 20 years imprisonment and fines of up to $10,000 for each count of first-degree theft, which is a class B felony.  If he is convicted of second-degree theft, a class C felony, he faces a penalty of one to ten years imprisonment and up to $5,000.

Attorney General King commended Deputy Attorney General Joseph Fitzpatrick of his Public Corruption and White Collar Crime Division and Special Agent Darrell Sambor of his Investigations Division.
