UNION COUNTY — A Blacksburg man will be arrested on larceny charges by the Union County Sheriff’s Office upon being released from jail in Cherokee County.
In a statement released Thursday, the sheriff’s office announced that Kevin James Bolin, 40, of 1046 W. Pine St., Blacksburg, was charged with 11 counts of grand larceny and one count of petit larceny on Dec. 11.
The announcement states that investigators say Bolin did unlawfully obtain goods from his employer — Preferred Finishing, LLC in Jonesville — on 11 separate occasions between Oct. 19-Nov. 26 for the purpose of defrauding the owner of the goods. The amount of items stolen was approximately $60,000. As of Thursday, investigators have recovered approximately $15,000 of the stolen goods.
Sheriff David Taylor said that hard work on the part of Investigator Scott Coffer is what it took to solve this case and he commended Coffer for that.
The announcement states that Bolin was taken into custody by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office on Dec. 11, where he remains on their charges and will be turned over to the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
