GEORGETOWN, KY (WAVE) – A Clark County, Kentucky man has been arrested for stealing more than $56,000 in auto parts while he was briefly employed at the Toyota plant in Georgetown, KY.
According to an arrest warrant, Michael G. Kenny, 66, of Winchester, was a temporary employee of the plant between March 19 and May 15 of this year.
Authorities said over the two month period, Kenny, at various times, took a total of 160 engine cylinder heads from the plant floor. Once out of the plant, Kenny would place items outside a fence on the property only to return later to load the stolen merchandise into his pickup truck and leave.
The warrant states Kenny would later sell the engine heads as scrap to two recycling companies, Stuffs Recycling and Can Man Recycling.
Authorities said Kenny was photographed selling the items at one location and admitted to the thefts during a telephone call recorded by detectives.
Kenny is charged with theft by unlawful taking over $10,000.
Officials said 43 cylinder heads were recovered, but Toyota officials said they are unusable and considered a total loss.
