THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A man is sentenced to three years in prison for stealing trade secrets from a Thomasville Company and giving them to a competitor in Columbus.

Kevin Crow pleaded guilty to felony theft in June. He worked for Turbine Engines Components Technologies in Thomasville for 27-years. He took approximately 100 computer discs with drawings, customer prints, and pricing information.  In 2008, he started working for Precision Components International in Columbus. At one point, he called a former co-worker asking for copies of TECT's contract reviews and said he wanted that company to go out of business.

Crow was also ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and faces three years supervised release at the end of his prison term.
