Employee Charged in Audio Equipment Theft

KSAL Staff - July 28, 2017 11:36 am

The online sale of a Led Zeppelin album leads to the discovery of some high-end stereo equipment, stolen from Acoustic Sounds of Salina.

Police Sergeant Jim Feldman tells KSAL News that 33-year-old Cody A. Hackney was arrested on Thursday after police used a search warrant at his home at 733 Dustin Road and found a stolen SME Precision audio turntable for playing records valued at $20,000 and another high resolution music player.

Police say the investigation began when a local, longtime customer of Acoustic Sound, purchased Led Zeppelin I on Ebay from Hackney – and found it curious that the LP was sent in Acoustic Sound packaging.

He told the company which led to SPD’s investigation and search of Hackney’s home.

Police believe Hackney may have been taking items home from Acoustic Sounds since January of this year and selling them online.

He is now facing multiple charges that include property theft, theft by deception and felony obstruction.

Acoustic Sounds, 605 W. North, is a company that sells vinyl records and high-end audio equipment.

Like shooting fish in the barrel. If this guy has been stealing for 7 months those in charge evidently we’re not at the head of the class.

See this is what kids turn into when they are raised by leftist liberal parents.
This thief’s parents worked at Beech Aircraft and spoiled him and his sister to the max!
Always getting whatever they wanted for birthdays and Christmas. Then the grandparents spoiled them too. Never had to earn anything in their life. Now fast forward…they have to work for a living…OMG!!! NO! NO! NO! So the way this spoiled BRAT gets what he wants it to steal from his employer! Good job Pam and Ed!!! LMFAO!!!! Good luck with this deal!!! Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!
