Commercial Truck Driver Convicted of Stealing Merchandise During Shipment


 A commercial truck driver from Neffs has been convicted of stealing products during a shipment.

The United States Attorney’s Office announced that Bruce Silver, 55, was convicted in federal court on Monday after he admitted to using his position to steal merchandise.

Silver owned the vehicle that he operated, which he used to transport shipments of retail goods, including deliveries of products and goods from Cabela’s Distribution Center at the Highlands. 

He devised a scheme to embezzle and steal Cabela’s merchandise while the goods were being transported. In April of 2014, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Silver stole a  shipment of Cabela’s products valued at more than $1,000.

He pleaded guilty on Monday to the charges, including theft from interstate shipment. He faces up to 10 years in jail and a fine up to $250,000.
