JONESTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) - A Lebanon man who worked as a chef for former Gov. Ed Rendell was charged in the theft of more than $10,000 in property from the Governor's Mansion in Harrisburg after he sold some of the items to a jewelry and antiques dealer, according to police.

State police in Jonestown said 28-year-old Michael Yancey sold several pieces of sterling silver cutlery in the last two months.

He was arrested Monday evening after a search of his home turned up additional stolen silver, six framed photographs, and an NFL Football signed by former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly and addressed to Gov. Ed Rendell, police said.

Investigators said two of the cutlery pieces recovered from the shop in Lebanon had been stamped "Executive Mansion," but were scratched in an attempt to conceal the markings.

They added that an accurate value has not been set for some of the stolen items, including a silver tea set and other property that may have historical or priceless value.

Yancey had been employed as a sous chef in the Governor's Residence. He was charged with numerous counts of receiving stolen property and sent to Lebanon County Prison on $10,000 bail.

A condition of his bail is that he is prohibited from having contact with Rendell or Gov. Tom Corbett, and is prohibited from the grounds of both the Governor's Complex and the Lieutenant Governor's Complex.
