ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A man who used to live and work in south Georgia is charged with theft of trade secrets.
He's accused of providing information from a Thomasville company to a competitor in Columbus. In federal court in Albany Friday afternoon 57-year old Kevin Crow pleaded guilty to a felony theft charge. @
Few people could comment on this case because it is an ongoing investigation that could lead to further arrests and potentially more charges. Friday in court they unsealed this information that explains just what Kevin Crow took from the Thomasville Company named TECT and gave to a Columbus company with ties to Israel.
Crow and his wife wouldn't stop for our cameras and went straight to his car and left. His attorney wouldn't comment either. In court, prosecutors explained Crow worked for Turbine Engines Components Technologies in Thomasville from August of 1979 until June of 2007. The company makes forged hand tools, medical instruments, and turbine engine components. Crow took approximately 100 computer discs with drawings, customer prints, and pricing information. In 2008 he started working for a Precision Components International, a competitor in Columbus, and at one point called a former coworker who still worked for TECT to send him copies of TECT's contract reviews, saying he wanted TECT go out of business, because of the company's mismanagement. The victims were also in court, but refused to comment.
Crow's travel is limited to Georgia, Florida, South Carolina where he currently lives. He could face up to 10 years in jail and a $250,000 in fines at sentencing. He could be force to pay for company losses up to 14 million dollars.
Judge Louis Sands ordered a pre-sentence evaluation but did not set a date for the sentencing. Crow currently works for Honeywell in South Carolina which also has an aerospace division.
