Charges dismissed against former UPS employee accused of stealing rifles from police

Felony theft charges were dropped Thursday against a 37-year-old former UPS supervisor accused of stealing rifles and gun parts in March 2015 from a distribution center.

“Robert is a devout Christian and has never been in trouble before in his life,” said Luera’s attorney, Frank Sellers. “He made some very serious mistakes that, as soon as he was approached by police, he was 100 percent cooperative at all times throughout the investigation to help get back the property to the rightful owners.”
