Sekisui employees charged with theft

A pair of internal thefts at Sekisui involving $600,000 worth of material led police to charge four employees with felony theft.

Winchester Police Detective James Hall said officers were called to the plant to investigate a $500,000 theft earlier this month and discovered another theft in the process. The two thefts do not appear to be related, Hall said.

On Aug. 16, a $500,000, and 80,000-pound, load of plastic film was diverted from Sekisui to recycling companies. David Coffey, 45, of Irvine, is facing a single charge of theft by unlawful taking for allegedly stealing the two tractor-trailer loads of material from the plant, Winchester Police Detective James Hall said. The material was a plastic film used in automobile windshields.

“The evidence (was) he was involved in that theft, loading the product on trucks that left the area,” Hall said.

In the arrest citation, Hall wrote that Coffey was recorded on surveillance video loading pallets of material onto the trucks. Coffey told police he was ordered to do so by the department manager. The manager denied any involvement. Hall also wrote that there were no written orders for the material to be loaded at all.

At this point, police don’t know where the product ended up.
