Lowell, MA man was charged with larceny under $250.00.

Leominster District Court

Client a 60 year old Lowell, MA man was charged with larceny under $250.00.

The client was alleged to have taken an industrial grade air conditioning unit from a local hospital without their permission.  The air conditioner was an old unit left outside in one of their garages by the hospital.  The police had still photos of the client and his vehicle backing up to the AC unit and placing it in his truck with other men.

The client maintained that he was in the scrap metal business, that he lawfully obtained scrap metal from various businesses all over the area, and that on an earlier date he had been given permission by a hospital employee to take any scrap metal that had been left in that area.  The client provided a written statement to police of his version of the events.

After negotiating the case with the Commonwealth they agreed to dismiss the charges upon the payment of $150 based on the scrap value of the metal, however the hospital maintained they never gave the client permission to take the unit.

Case Dismissed upon the payment of $150.00
