Dare Turns Into Theft Charges

A dare by friends turned into theft charges for Timothy Rippy. Information filed by Worth County Prosecuting Attorney David Baird alleges that on the night of April 20th, Rippy appropriated firearms and miscellaneous property including an AC-15 rifle and a Beretta .40 handgun owned by Tim Adams and Allen and Becky Cameron.
On May 2nd, 2012 at around 4:05 p.m., according to a statement provided by the Worth County Sheriff’s Office, Rippy came to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office and admitted that he had been dared by friends to load a large safe by himself onto his truck, a 1987 GMC. He did so and then broke into the safe with a torch. He wouldn’t say where the safe was, but said that two of the guns in question were seized by the Gentry County Sheriff according to the statement. The statement says that he returned a Model 88 Mav 12-gauge shotgun and a large amount of ammunition to the Sheriff.
Hearing is set for July 9th at 1:30 at the Worth County Courthouse.
