Crime has a personal side.
The facts might be straightforward: Keller Supply of Soldotna reported the theft of $17,000, an employee was arrested. In this case, 27-year-old Brian Blades of Soldotna was charged with embezzling the money between September 2012 and February 2013, but Manager Dana Cochran said her heart still goes out to the young man.
Cochran: “It’s heartbreaking finding out that someone you trusted does that to you. That’s heartbreaking. I’ve known him a very long time, and so I put my full trust into him and it just breaks my heart.”
Cochran: “I’d like the community to pray for him, for his salvation.”
Blades was arrested last week on the charge of Theft II and remanded to Wildwood.
