Three Arrested For Theft Of Fencing Materials

Mesa County, Colo. -- On April 5, a 17-year-old female and two adult accomplices were arrested for the theft of a large amount of fencing materials from a property on 33 Road, located in Mesa County. The owner of the fencing materials estimated the value of the stolen items to be approximately $2,800.00 to $5,700.00.

From detailed eye witness accounts of the theft and information from a local recycle facility where the suspects are believed to have sold the stolen materials as scrap metal, deputies were able to contact and arrest John Stene, 24, of Clifton, and Sierra Sherman, 21, of Clifton, along with the 17-year-old female. All three suspects were charged with third degree trespassing and theft, a class six felony. In addition, John was charged with a class four felony for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, related to the 17-year-old's suspected involvement in this incident. *Note: The juvenile female is not being named in accordance with Colorado Open Records Act, C. R. S. 19-1-304 (b.5).
