A circuit court judge in Frederick County, Va. has sentenced a West Virginia man for stealing breast pumps.
According to investigators with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, David Grundahl Jr., 35, of Martinsburg, West Virginia will serve one year for stealing over 550 breast pumps, which were estimated to be worth over $155,000.
Grundahl entered a plea agreement Tuesday, in which seven of the eight larceny charges were dropped.
Prosecutors say Grundahl stole the pumps over the span of four months, while working for the medical equipment company McKesson’s distribution center on Martinsburg Pike in Frederick County. Investigators say he was repackaging the products for sale.
According to Grundahl’s attorney, Carroll “Beau” Correll, Grundahl’s sentence will include time served, as he has been incarcerated since October of 2018.
“We’re glad that at the end of the day, after all the smoke settled, it was pretty clear that the facts did not match up to the allegation, as 90 percent of the charges were eliminated,” said Correll.
Grundahl was also ordered to pay restitution to the company, but merely a fraction of the pumps’ estimated worth says Correll.
