A Bedias man has been convicted by a Brazos County Jury for stealing what was determined to be $100,000 worth of Tungsten Carbide Metal.
The man, 51 year old Dennis Surface of Bedias, is the first of two brothers from Grimes County to go on trial for a felony theft charge from their former employer.
According to the indictment, numerous thefts occurred at Dynalloy Industries in south Brazos County. The thefts happened between December 2014 and May 2015, which was reported to the Brazos county Sheriff’s Office by a neighbor and customer of the business north of Navasota.
Surface was sentences to 10 years in prison plus full restitution, with review of the punishment by a judge after he served 90 to 180 days.
His brother, 46 year old Michael Surface of Navasota, awaits his trial and remains out of jail on bond.
