Brooksville man accused of stealing, dismantling city-owned van


Man charged with stealing city's vehicle

A 35-year-old Brooksville man was arrested Friday and charged in connection with the theft of a city-owned van earlier this week, police said.

Richard A. Canterbury III admitted to driving and dismantling the van but denied that he had stolen it, according to the Brooksville Police Department. Locked and parked at the Jerome Brown Community Center, the van was stolen between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

An informant told police that Canterbury took the van. When investigators went to Canterbury's home, they found seats and other interior parts from the vehicle.

Canterbury, of 712 W Jefferson St., Lot 12, was charged with grand theft auto and criminal mischief. He remained in the Hernando County Detention Center on Friday in lieu of $3,000 bail.
