Couple arrested on theft charges

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Brandon L. Duskey
A Brazil couple recently spent the weekend "in the clink" for allegedly taking a refrigerator that didn't belong to them.

According to officials at the Brazil City Police Department, Brandon L. Duskey, 24, Stacy Duskey, 24, were arrested on class D felony theft charges stemming from an investigation on or about Aug. 24.

The Brazil Housing Authority apparently contacted the BCPD after the couple moved out of an apartment at Central West Village and allegedly took the refrigerator that was supposed to remain in the apartment.

Stacy Duskey
Investigators turned over a case file to the Clay County Prosecutor's Office, who acquired arrest warrants for the couple based on the information and evidence provided.

An officer with the Brazil City Police Department arrested Brandon Friday, while Stacy, upon learning about the warrant, turned herself into a deputy with the Clay County Sheriff's Department later the same evening.

Initially both were incarcerated on $7,000 cash bonds (with 10 percent allowed). However, on Monday, Clay Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout released Brandon on his own recognizance when he appeared for formal arraignment. Attorney Charles Hear was appointed as defense counsel and a tentative jury trial was scheduled for Dec. 6.

Jail officials confirmed Wednesday Stacy, who appeared by video conference before Clay Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers on Monday, remains incarcerated while awaiting further court proceedings. Attorney Matthew Effner will represent Stacy, whose jury trial has been tentatively scheduled Jan. 24.

The Housing Authority should thank them,now they won't need to haul it to the dump

Why was the guy only released on his own recognizance. I am sure that refridge was worth thousands to be charged with a felony!

I hope this was a misunderstanding and not actual theft. Why on earth anyone would want one of those refridgerators is beyond me.

"worth thousands"? Even the really nice, double-door with freezer below stainless steel fridges are about $1800-not "thousands". Did they think no one was going to notice a missing fridge?

Thall and millertime are slipping; they can't seem to recognize sarcasm.

Even if the thing was only worth a plug nickle, theft is theft.

For cryen out loud, They can arrest them for stilen, But they can't clean up the place. I guess drugs are ok to them.

"and to all the people that run Ur mouth on here quit being scared and put Ur NAME........"

Good advice. I'm curious as to what your middle name is, SCARED .. maybe "hypocrite"?

There's "real trash" everywhere and many people who live in that area do so because it's all they can afford. The waiting list is at least 24 months (or it was a few years ago) long.

Oh, and if you found a syringe while mowing, you should have turned it in.
