Va. man serving time for Garrett theft scheme

OAKLAND — A Virginia man was sentenced to an eight-year prison term recently in Garrett County Circuit Court in connection with theft and theft scheme charges.

Thomas Lee Wilson, 60, Luray, was sentenced to eight years in the Maryland Division of Correction, with all of the sentence suspended but 18 months in the Garrett County Detention Center.

Wilson will be on probation upon his release. He was also ordered to pay restitution of $10,000.

Wilson was found guilty of seven counts of theft between $1,000 and $10,000 and of a charge of theft-scheme between $10,000 and $100,000 by a jury following a trial in December. 

At sentencing, Judge James Sherbin determined the seven individual theft charges be merged into the theft scheme charge for him to impose one sentence.

Wilson was charged in November 2012 by investigators with the Garrett County Sheriff’s Office. In mid-2012, a local businessman entered into an agreement with Wilson, then a sales consultant at a dealership in Harrisonburg, Va., for the purchase of a vehicle and provided various payments toward the purchase. 

The victim determined Wilson had not used all of the funds for the purchase and when Wilson failed to deliver the vehicle, he could not contact Wilson. He then learned that Wilson was no longer at the dealership in Harrisonburg and a dealer in Penn Laird, Va., called him to request he complete the payments for the vehicle with that dealer.

When monies provided by the victim were compared to monies forwarded by Wilson to the dealer, there was a difference of $17,690. Although not admitting criminal culpability, Wilson made partial restitution of $7,690 during the pendency of this case.
