Heroin habit results in TV theft
February 24, 2014
A Carson City man said he stole one television from the Gardnerville Walmart and tried to steal another, to support his 3-gram-a-day heroin addiction.
Logan Daniel Anderson, 26, admitted two counts of burglary in connection with the theft of one television and attempted theft of another.
Anderson faces 12-30 months in prison on each count, but could also get probation.
His attorney said he’d be seeking diversion.
Anderson was frank with District Judge Michael Gibbons in his description of what he did.
“That Walmart was so empty,” he said. “I just walked out with the first one. The second, they caught me at the door.”
Anderson admitted to taking a television on Dec. 12 and trying to take another on Jan. 7, when he was arrested.
In the first theft, Anderson took a 50-inch Samsung television and put it into a two-door sedan. He said he sold the $798 television for $250.
The second time, Anderson was taken into custody as he was attempting to steal a 55-inch television worth $678 from the store.
Gibbons ordered Anderson returned for sentencing on April 21.
