Local Man In Court After Stealing From Local Businesses

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The man accused of purchasing more nearly $30,000 worth of merchandise and services with fake checks appeared before a judge Tuesday. After several witnesses testified, Steven Goldmann's case has been bound over to the Grand Jury.

Police arrested Steven Goldmann last month after management at the downtown Hilton became suspicious and called to report his activities, which included asking to land a helicopter on the hotel's property. Officers learned Goldmann was wanted in Montana for writing bad checks and took him into custody.

Goldmann has been charged with felony theft of property for allegedly purchasing more than $15,000 in clothing and merchandise, from custom-made handbags and clutches to one-of-a-kind clothes, from Manuel America Design on Broadway. Police said he used checks from an account he recently opened and knew did not have the available funds.

He was also charged with theft of services for chartering 29 limousine rides from Metro Livery between November 16 and December 10. The total estimated cost of the limo services provided was $12,300. Goldmann told the company that his business, Stepping Stone Holdings, would reimburse them for the bill.

Fraud detectives are also investigating the alleged defrauding of a Nashville helicopter company. Goldmann reportedly took trips to Bethpage for dinner and Franklin, Tennessee.
