Tennessee Man Sentenced For Interstate Transportation Of Stolen Vehicles

MADISON, WIS. --John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Bradley Green, 28, of Cottage Grove, Tenn., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 15 months in federal prison for interstate transportation of stolen vehicles and property.   Green pleaded guilty to this charge on July 31, 2014.

In December 2013, Green traveled from Marshfield, Wis., to Roscoe, Ill., where he wrote a check for over $100,000 for the purchase of three trucks from Autoland Outlets.  The check was written on an account at a Tennessee bank which had been closed for nearly a year.  The same day, Green also bought a trailer and equipment to tow one of the three trucks purchased, writing a separate fraudulent check to Nite Equipment in nearby Pecatonica, Ill. 

Green then transported the stolen trucks and equipment to the Marshfield area, where he was staying with friends.  Marshfield Police helped locate and recover the stolen items.    

The charges against Green were the result of an investigation conducted by the Roscoe Police Department, the Illinois State Police, the Northern Illinois Auto Theft Task Force, and the Marshfield Police Department.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Anderson.
