The Panama City Police Department arrested and charged 32-year-old Ryan Lee Grantham with Grand Theft.
Grantham was sub-contracted as an installer for Sear's Department Store. Grantham picked up the item to be installed in a customer's home but never completed the installation. The customer had paid for the item and the installation. Grantham then returned the item to Sear's and used the credited amount of funds to obtain a 52” television, and a video camera valued at approximately $1,600.00. The customer alerted Sear's that he never received his installation. Loss Prevention authorities at Sear's then looked into the theft. The Panama City Police Department's Investigation Section worked the case and the property was recovered. Grantham was arrested and charged with the crime on Tuesday.
