An East Chicago resident has been sentenced to a year in federal prison
after pleading guilty in connection with the theft of a milk truck, the U.S.
Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana said.
Anthony Cerrillos, 45, was sentenced to 12 months in prison and two years of
supervised release and was ordered to make restitution to Dean Foods of
$10,000, after pleading guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen goods that
had a value in excess of $5,000.
In August 2011, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said, “Cerrillos and his brother,
Brian Cerrillos, stole a refrigerated milk trailer from a dairy distributor
in Hammond,” then traveled to Illinois and sold the milk at different
convenience stores for a profit.
The case was investigated by the FBI and the Hammond Police Department.
