Dodgers News: Former Employees Sentenced for Stadium Theft

Three men that were accused of stealing merchandise from Dodger Stadium in 2015 have officially been sentenced, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Two of the men are former Dodger Stadium security guards. Both Juan DeDios Prada, 59, and Fernando Sierra, 63, pleaded to one count of second-degree commercial burglary. There was also a third member, Jesse Luis Dagnesses, who was responsible for selling the stolen items on Ebay.

They were originally caught when another Dodger Stadium employee noticed that a Don Mattingly game jersey, an Adrian Gonzalez game jersey and Yasiel Puig bats were missing from the clubhouse. The two men were caught on camera attempting to steal again while wearing their security guard jackets as well as Dodger batting gloves and were then taken into custody.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

All three were sentenced to three years formal probation, 120 hours of Caltrans work and ordered to pay $2,500 in restitution to the Dodgers, according to the district attorney’s office.

If any of the men violate probation, which includes selling any memorabilia, they are subject to a 16-month county jail sentence, according to authorities.

This is absolutely wild. The fact that these men were caught because they were wearing the gloves is comical. Thankfully they were caught and justice has been served!
