The 59 year old homeless man arrested for stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise from the local Walmarts has pleaded guilty.
Timothy Redmond pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of stolen property in Whitman County Superior Court on Friday. Redmond was arrested by the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office in June. A deputy pulled over Redmond near Pullman and found him with nearly 2,000 dollars in stolen merchandise from both the Pullman and Moscow Walmarts.
Judge Gary Libey agreed with the prosecutor’s office recommendation and credited Redmond for the months that he’s been in the Whitman County Jail in Colfax. Prosecutor Denis Tracy told the court that Redmond has been a “drain” on jail staff and that it’s time for him to move on. He will be transferred to the Asotin County Jail where he faces additional property crimes and an extradition warrant out of Idaho.
