Bench Warrant Issued For Casper Man – No Show for Sentencing Hearing
Natrona County Law Enforcement is looking for a Casper man who admitted to taking money from a gas station, after he didn't show up to be sentenced.
A bench warrant has been issued for Clarence Sifore who has pleaded guilty to one charge of theft.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say through interviews with a witness, and from watching surveillance camera video, in middle April, two people entered the Loaf 'N Jug gas station on North Center Street.
One person started talking with the cashier, while Sifore went into the office and took a bag with more than $2,700 cash in it.
The accomplice distracted the cashier so that she couldn't look towards the office, to see what was going on.
Police eventually found Sifore, and the cashier was able to identify him in a photo line-up.
Since Sifore didn't show up in court, whenever he is found, Natrona County Prosecutors could pull the plea deal off the table and seek the maximum of 10 years in prison, and Sifore would not be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea.
Prosecutors say this is the 11th time that SIfore has failed to appear in court for a scheduled hearing.
He was free on a $3,000 PR bond.
