Lauderdale County man charged with theft turns himself in
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - A man from Lauderdale County that has previously been arrested for stolen valor has now turned himself in for charges related to first-degree theft according to Lauderdale County Investigator Matt Burbank.
William Travis Tucker turned himself in to Lauderdale County Deputies on three counts of theft by deception in the first degree. These charges were indicted by the Lauderdale County Grand Jury and were due to actions from a previous arrest related to stolen valor.
In 2020, Tucker was arrested and charged with stolen valor in Colbert County. In October 2021, Trucker was arrested and indicted with one count of identity theft and one count first-degree theft of property.
“He just liked to steal money. That was the biggest thing. By taking advantage of them. He was actually getting thousand of dollars from multiple people in multiple areas,” said Florence Police Officer Chad Breedwell in October.
According to court documents, Tucker stole a woman’s identity to obtain student loans in Lauderdale County. Court documents also state Tucker stole more than $2,500 from the same woman.
