Eagle Butte Man Indicted for Burglary and Larceny

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Third Degree Burglary and Larceny.

Daniel LeBeau, age 30, was indicted on November 8, 2016.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Moreno on November 11, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction for the Burglary is up to 10 years in custody, and is 5 years for the Larceny.  Each offense carries a maximum fine of $250,000, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The indictment alleges that between June 2, 2016, and June 13, 2016, at Eagle Butte, LeBeau unlawfully entered or remained in an unoccupied structure and after doing so, took or carried away the personal property of another.   

The charges are merely accusations and LeBeau is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

LeBeau was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
