Timber Lake Man Sentenced For Larceny

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Timber Lake, South Dakota, man charged with Larceny, pled guilty to and was sentenced on June 3, 2015, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Chapen Kraft, age 18, was sentenced to 18 months of probation and a special assessment of $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident between September 15, 2014, and October 11, 2014, when Kraft broke into a barn or storage shed and stole a two-ton jack, a 12-volt jumper box, a roll of air hose, an 8 foot roll of cable, and a used vehicle tire.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Agency.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie G. Sanderson prosecuted the case.
