Shooter's Supply theft nets eight months in jail


A Superior man who stole nine handguns from Superior Shooter's Supply will spend eight months behind bars, but could avoid prison time.

Dexter Thomas Leddy, 23, pleaded no contest Sept. 14 in Douglas County Circuit Court to theft of movable property-special facts. Eight counts of theft of movable property-special facts and a burglary charge were dismissed.

An 18-month prison sentence followed by 30 months of extended supervision was imposed and stayed. Instead, Leddy was given three years of probation, which includes eight months in jail. He was also ordered to pay $4,463 restitution, $964 in court costs and to earn a high school diploma or an equivalent.

The prison sentence would only be imposed if Leddy's probation was revoked.

According to the criminal complaint:

Leddy pried open the east side door Jan. 1, 2016, at Superior Shooter's Supply and stole nine handguns from glass cases.
