After trial, a jury found William John Pinaula guilty of Receiving Stolen Property as a Second-Degree Felony after a flatbed truck stolen from Morrico Equipment in May 2017 was found at his house.
Prosecutor Peter J. Santos said “This case was solved by an observant police detective who spotted the suspect’s vehicle while investigating a separate case.”
“I am grateful that the jury was attentive and listened to all of the evidence at trial before making their decision. This conviction would not have been possible without the employees of Morrico and great police work,” he finished.
Pinaula will be sentenced on September 13, 2019, and faces a minimum mandatory of 5 years.
