Defendant: Antwyan Reynolds

Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announces that the Franklin County Grand Jury has returned an indictment against Antwyan D. Reynolds, age 32, for one count (F-4) Theft and one count (F-4) Tampering with Records, for a total of two counts. Reynolds was a former Regional Manager for the tire company. Michelin has several tire distributors in Ohio. It is alleged that Reynolds was obtaining a large quantity of tires (around 500) from the Michelin facility in Columbus by falsifying documents. The value of the tires is approximately $78,000. The investigators report he either gave away or sold the tires. O’Brien said “This was a trusted employee who abused his position.”  The theft was discovered after Michelin Security conducted their own internal investigation. “If found guilty on these charges, the defendant faces a potential twelve months incarceration”, O’Brien stated.
