As we mentioned earlier we’ve got Andrew Bender on site at the All Good Music Festival in Masontown, WV; but some news has hit the AP wire about a non-musical aspect of the event. Allegedly, suspect Russell Wayne Deatherage thought it would be a good idea to swipe a bag filled with 100 VIP bracelets for the event, worth $487.96 each, from a nearby hotel where event organizers were selling and distributing the credentials. When All Good officials confronted Deatherage he fled on foot.
The All Good representatives called the cops, who quickly found Deatherage and were able to find the bag of bracelets which he had hidden behind a vending machine at the hotel. Things won’t be “all good” for Russell if convicted since the total value of his theft was $48,796 making the crime grand larceny. While Deatherage has been released on his own recognizance, the same can’t be said for four festival attendees who were arrested on drug related charges at the first day of All Good and are each being held on $25,000 bonds.
Be sure to check back throughout the weekend for reports from Andrew Bender about the music goin’ down at the All Good Music Festival.
