Loren Glasscock was arraigned this morning on two counts of embezzlement. He faces up to five years in prison and/or fines up to $20,000 or three times the amount embezzled.
Investigators from the Ingham County Sheriff's Office and Michigan State Police say he stole and pawned 200 golf clubs and 15 complete sets of irons worth $51,000.
They began their investigation last April. They say Glasscock stole from Dick's Sporting Goods and Indian Hills Golf Course then pawned the items at Dicker and Deal in Lansing.
A special prosecutor assigned by the Michigan Attorney General's Office brought two charges of embezzlement against him Thursday.
Count 1: Embezzlement $1,000 or more but less than $20,000. Felony five years and/or $10,000 or three times the amount embezzled, whichever is greater.
Count 2: Embezzlement $200 or more but less than $1,000. Misdemeanor one year and/or $20,000 or three times the amount embezzled, whichever is greater.
Glasscock was released on a personal recognizance bond. He waived his preliminary hearing in District Court and is scheduled for a pretrial conference next month.
