CHAMBERLAIN -- A Chamberlain woman has been given a suspended prison sentence for her involvement with stealing a truck from Sisseton in February.
Carole Taylor, 38, was sentenced Oct. 31 to one year in prison suspended with credit for 87 days served after pleading guilty in September to being an accessory to a felony, a Class 5 felony offense.
On Feb. 20, Chamberlain police located a 2011 Chevy Silverado that had been reported as stolen from Sisseton outside a Chamberlain apartment building. Taylor, 40-year-old Daniel Taylor and 37-year-old Kayla Labelle were found inside the apartment. Court documents indicate Taylor was living in the apartment. Labelle told police Daniel Taylor, who was asleep, was named Jason, and she said he had driven her to the apartment in the truck.
All three people were arrested after police inspected bags in the apartment and located the truck owner's son's ID, the truck owner's jacket and a purse and laptop that were reported as stolen from Alexandria the previous night.
In March, Daniel Taylor was sentenced to two years in prison with six months suspended for grand theft of more than $5,000 and less than $100,000.01. Labelle pleaded guilty to obstructing police on April 17 and was sentenced to 90 days in jail with 71 days suspended and credit for 19 days served. She was ordered to pay $386.50 in fines and court costs. Taylor was ordered to pay $251.64.
