District Attorney Martin Beeson presents Art Cox of the Meeker Cemetery District with a $10,000 restitution check. The check is part of the restitution the Cemetery District will be receiving from Randall Devaney of Larkspur, Colo. The money is part of a plea arrangement stemming from a theft case where Devaney received $25,697.20 from the Cemetery District to purchase a metal building. Beeson thanked Art and Lila Cox for their assistance in the case as well as Meeker Police Lieutenant Phil Stubblefield (left, next to Police Chief Bob Hervey) for his investigation and Deputy D.A. Gene Tardy (far right) for his prosecution of the case. District Attorney Beeson said it is rare to receive a large sum in restitution and expects Devaney to pay the remaining amount.
