YORK – Brandon Kirby, 26, who is classified in court documents as being a transient, has pleaded not guilty to theft/receiving stolen property with a value of more than $5,000.

His arraignment was held Tuesday in York County District Court.

He is charged with a Class 2A felony, which carries a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison upon conviction.

According to court documents, troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol were on regular duty on Interstate 80, in Hamilton County, when they were advised that a stolen vehicle was headed in their direction.

They were told to watch for a blue Chevrolet Silverado pickup – which they soon located. The vehicle was stopped in York County, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

Kirby was the driver, according to investigators, and the arresting troopers said he admitted to them that he stole the vehicle.

He was arrested and the vehicle was transported to Grand Island to be released to its owner.

A jury trial has been scheduled in matter, for early next year.
