HUTCHINSON – A Hutchinson man arrested in October for allegedly stealing catalytic converters was before a judge Thursday for the reading of formal charges.
Joshua Alderman is charged for theft of property for allegedly stealing the converters — valued between $1,500 to $25,000 — from Silas Enterprises.
The state, as an alternate count, also charged him with possession of stolen property. An alternate charge means he can be convicted of one of the two, but not both.
Alderman is scheduled to be back in court next month.
