Homewood Man Charged with Stealing Sears Delivery Truck and Contents

PITTSBURGH – A Pittsburgh resident has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of stealing and possessing stolen goods from an interstate shipment, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The two-count indictment, returned yesterday, named Anthony Bailey, age 37, of Pittsburgh.

According to the indictment, on April 13, 2016, Bailey stole a Sears delivery truck worth approximately $20,000.00. He also stole the merchandise inside of the truck, which was worth approximately $30,000.00. At the time, the truck and the merchandise were moving in interstate commerce.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than ten (10) years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history of the defendant.

This case is being prosecuted under Project Safe Neighborhoods, a collaborative effort by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, prosecutors and communities to prevent, deter, and prosecute gun crime. Assistant United States Attorney Conor Lamb is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
