Brandon Pederson Pleads Not Guilty To Burglary
A Bar Nunn man is accused of being involved in an auto burglary earlier this year.
Brandon Pederson has pleaded not guilty to one charge of burglary.
Investigators with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office say in March, there was an investigation of 14 separate automobile burglaries in the Bar Nunn area.
In one case, about $5,800 of “Magic the Gathering” playing cards were taken.
A sheriff’s investigator contacted a local business that sold and bought the playing cards.
The business owner told the investigator that Joshua Bland came into his store to sell some of the cards, some of which were rare and expensive.
The burglary victim was able to confirm the authenticity of the stolen cards.
When Bland was contacted at his residence by investigators, it was determined that Pederson was living at the same place, and he admitted that he had a role in some of the auto burglaries.
Pederson is free on $4,000 bond awaiting trial and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Meanwhile Bland has pleaded guilty to his role in the case, and is waiting to be sentenced.
