Prison given in theft case


A Wymore man with two cases in Gage County District Court was sentenced to prison this week.

In the first case, 36-year-old Bryon M. Forney was sentenced to three years in prison for attempted theft by receiving stolen property valued at more than $5,000, which is a class 3 A felony.

Forney was arrested in January after stealing a Chevrolet Avalanche from Wymore.

The reporting party described the man who got into the vehicle and drove away from the residence, according to Gage County Court documents. The reporting party followed the vehicle into Blue Springs.

It was located in a driveway, and Wymore police advised the driver was not in the vehicle, which was running.

A man matching the description of the suspect walked out of the residence where the vehicle was found and was detained.

He was identified as Forney, and allegedly denied driving the vehicle and said another man had taken it.

Court documents note that Forney also stated the vehicle wasn't stolen and that he had permission to drive it. The vehicle was valued at $12,000.

In the second case, Forney was sentenced to two years for driving while revoked and for failing to appear from a June 2018 arrest. Those two sentences will run consecutively to the theft case, totaling five years.
