Man Sentenced in Grain Elevator Scam in Herman


Bryan Dallas Crandall, 37, conspired with two employees of the Cenex Harvest States (CHS) grain elevator in Herman to manipulate the records of corn and soybeans delivered by Crandall on multiple occasions between 2013 and 2017.

At the time of the fraud, the computer system in place at the elevator in Herman allowed an elevator employee to manually adjust scale readings, in order to allow the scale operator to correct potential errors in the weighing process.

Crandall was sentenced Thursday, June 3 to four years of probation, local community confinement, and $416,389 in restitution, for his role in a wire fraud scheme.
