Man gets probation in over $10,000 theft from Snap-on Tools
A man who received goods stolen from Snap-on Inc. and sold them has avoided prison and will serve three years probation. Michael Ostrom, 55, of Somonauk, Ill., said his then-girlfriend Linda Anderson arranged for the items to be sent to him. Anderson worked for Snap-on in 2007 when the thefts took place, and she helped process returns. Ostrom took the scratch-and-dent inventory that Snap-on could not sell through its dealers and sold them on Craigslist. He paid for the shipping costs but not for the merchandise. Ostrom had no prior criminal record and was a “model citizen,” according to information presented during his Monday sentencing hearing. Ostrom has paid $12,500 in restitution to Snap-on. (Source
