Hill

A man suspected of stealing and selling a hefty amount of Pepsi from his own employer was arrested by authorities with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office this week.

The now former employee of Buffalo Rock, Bradford Sorrell Hill, 44, was charged with theft by taking for stealing a large amount of Pepsi drinks from his employer, selling them at discounted prices to businesses in Coweta County and pocketing the money, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. Authorities believe Hill was doing this from March to April this year, and stole around $17,000 worth of Pepsi drinks from Buffalo Rock during this time.

After becoming suspicious of Hill, the company contacted the sheriff’s office, Yarbrough said. Investigator Jon McIntyre led the investigation and charged Hill with the felony theft on Wednesday. Hill was fired from the company, Yarbrough said, and was still in the Coweta County Jail as of late Thursday
