The solicitor general brought a second charge related to theft against a former Hall County Elections Board member who resigned in February. This time the item in question was a Yeti cup, according to court documents,.

Tommy Sandoval was previously charged with shoplifting, when Gainesville Police said Sandoval took two pairs of men’s boxer briefs from the Gainesville Wal-Mart on Shallowford Road.

Solicitor General Pro Tempore William Finch brought the accusation Friday of theft by shoplifting.

In a separate case filed Friday, Sandoval was accused of theft by taking in an alleged March 2016 incident. According to court documents, Sandoval allegedly took a 30-ounce Yeti stainless steel cup.

“An employee of the elections office began missing the Yeti cup,” Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.

Sandoval previously told The Times he was “wrongfully charged” in the boxers shoplifting case and he was looking forward to clearing his name.

He did not return multiple calls for comment Wednesday.
