He also is accused of larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny with the three men at Border States Electric, where two spools of wire worth $4,000 were stolen and later found in a U-haul truck in a Denver parking lot. He also is accused of larceny for stealing a 2004 Chevy crew cab pickup worth $8,000 from Black Hawk Crane, according to court documents.
