Scrapper falsified scale tickets
An East Chicago man who sold scrap metal to a Gary firm is charged with forgery and theft.
Curtis A. Bonds, 46, allegedly altered the scale tickets he received from Summit Inc., 6901 Chicago Ave., to show he delivered more scrap.
Bonds “was paid a total of $159,756 more than he should have,” the probable cause affidavit states.
Bonds told Detective Sgt. Freddie Cook “he had spent all of the money,” and didn’t have anything else to say about the allegations.

Man admits having sex with teen girl
Lake Superior Court Judge Diane Ross Boswell sentenced a former Gary man to 15 years in prison for sexual misconduct with a minor.
Antonio Cantu, 37, will serve his sentence simultaneously with a federal prison term he’s serving in Kentucky for bank robbery by force of violence, according to the terms of his plea agreement that outlined the 15-year term.
Cantu admitted he had sex with a 14-year-old girl in February 2011 at a home in Gary.
Nine other felony charges, including criminal deviate conduct, rape, sexual misconduct with a minor, sexual battery and an habitual offender enhancement were dismissed.
