Former Hunt Worker Ordered to Pay Restitution to Employer

A recent graduate of a firefighter academy in College Station is heading to prison. 35-year-old Garrett Wayne Meyer left his job on a Hunt ranch last year to be a firefighter, and paid for some of his tuition with money acquired from selling coins, watches and other items that were stolen from his employer, according to District Attorney Lucy Wilke. The Daily Times reported Meyer pleaded guilty to first-degree felony theft and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He also was ordered to pay $411,535 in restitution to the ranch owner.
