Williams pleads no contest to grand theft. No charges against two other suspects

One of three men arrested in connection with the theft of antique signs in Taft was sentenced to a jail term, but no charges have been filed against the other two men arrested.

Wade Williams, 32, pleaded no contest to grand theft on Tuesday and was sentenced to one year and four months in Kern County Jail.

He is expected to serve about half of that.

According to the Kern County Sheriff's website, Williams' anticipated release date is Oct. 25, 2017.

Williams was arrested in mid February along with Jeremy McClard, 33, Billy Landreth, 49.

Neither McClard or Landreth has been charged.

They were all booked in connection with the theft of antique oilfield signs $2,200 from a residence on the 100 block of Asher Way.

The signs were recovered, Taft Police said.
