Albany man gets 4 years for crimes

An Albany man took a plea agreement and will spend four years in prison after he tried to steal $5,000 worth of farming equipment over the summer.

Bradley D. Bartlett, 24, pleaded guilty to passing bad checks, breaking and entering, theft and child endangerment. Bartlett and Cassandra R. Smith, 25, tried to steal farm equipment and steel from a farm in Albany. The farm’s owners

caught them.

The couple left Smith’s 3-year-old daughter in the car during the robbery, according to court documents.

Bartlett was sentenced to one year for each charge of passing bad checks, breaking and entering, and theft. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail for the child endangerment charge, to run concurrently with the other three years. He was given the maximum sentence for all charges.

Bartlett also pleaded guilty to one count of theft in another case, giving him a total of four years in prison.

He will also have to pay $1,515 to Century National Bank and $1,945 to the Atomic Credit Union. He could be placed on parole for three years after his release.

Smith was given the same charges and pleaded not guilty. Her case is still pending.
