COLUMBIA — A Fulton teen pleaded guilty Monday to a theft that occurred during a Missouri-Nebraska football game more than two years ago.

On Oct. 6, 2007 at Memorial Stadium a parked car had between $12,000 and $14,000 stolen from it, according to the probable cause statement completed by Sgt. Shawn Spalding of the MU Police Department. The stolen money was from parking proceeds around the stadium and belonged to the MU Athletics  Department.

Investigators contacted Michael Davis, 19 now, and two juveniles on Dec. 30, 2008 for an interview following a tip on Dec. 19, 2008 from the Callaway County Sheriff’s Department. Davis gave the investigators “detailed information about the theft and admitted that he received some of the stolen cash,” the probable cause statement says.

Information on the two juveniles involved was unavailable because they were younger than 17 when the crime occurred.

Davis pleaded guilty to one count of theft and one count of receiving stolen property.

Final disposition and sentencing will be held on May 10.
