(RIPLEY CO.) - Monday, Indiana State Police detectives arrested 46-year-old Steven D. Linville, of Osgood, on seventeen counts of theft, level 6 felony, and seventeen counts of making/delivering a false sales document, level 6 felony.

The investigation by Detective Kip Main began in November of 2015 when the Laughery Valley Ag Co-Op, Osgood, reported a theft. The investigation led to charges being filed against Linville, who was a Laughery Valley Ag Co-Op employee when the crimes occurred.

Linville allegedly stole in excess of $100,000 in fuel, oil, washer fluid, and antifreeze from his employer over a period of a year. Linville then allegedly sold the stolen items to Bob's Service Station in Osgood, IN. Bob's Service Station is owned by Steven Linville's uncle, Bob Linville, who is a Ripley County Commissioner.

After the investigation was concluded, an arrest warrant was issued for Steven Linville out of the Ripley County Superior Court which led to his arrest at his home early yesterday morning.

Linville was transported to the Ripley County Jail where he soon bonded out after posting the bond which was set at $1,050. Linville will soon be given an initial court appearance date in the Ripley County Circuit Court.

No further charges and no further arrests are expected in this case at this time.
