A Bend man was sentenced in federal court Thursday for stealing tools from a business owned by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.
Kevin Neal Strampher, Jr., 40, allegedly stole tools from Warm Springs Composite Products, a wood products manufacturing business.
“According to court documents, on January 28, 2023, Strampher entered the Warm Springs Composite Products mill and stole more than $2,000 in power and hand tools. Using surveillance footage obtained by the mill manager and other evidence collected, Warm Springs Tribal Police officers identified Strampher as the individual who burglarized the business,” a release from prosecutors said.
Strampher pleaded guilty to theft from an Indian tribal organization.
He was sentenced to time served and one year of supervised release. Strampher was also ordered to pay $2,378 to the tribe.
