CHAMBERLAIN-A Sisseton man was sentenced by a Brule County court Tuesday to spend a year and a half in prison for stealing a truck from Sisseton.

Daniel Taylor, 39, was given a two-year sentence with six months suspended after pleading guilty to one count of grand theft of more than $5,000 and less than $100,000.01.

A Chamberlain police officer was notified by tribal police on Feb. 20 that a 2011 Chevy Silverado was stolen from Sisseton. He later located the vehicle parked outside a Chamberlain apartment.

Inside the apartment, the officer found Taylor, 38-year-old Carole Taylor and 36-year-old Kayla Labelle inside. Daniel Taylor was asleep in the living room, according to court documents, and did not acknowledge the officer.

Carole Taylor allegedly told police the sleeping man was named Jason. Labelle reportedly told police that "Jason" had driven her to the apartment in the stolen vehicle.

Upon inspection of bags in the apartment, police located an ID for the son of the truck's owner, a jacket belonging to the truck's owner, an ID with Daniel Taylor's name on it and a purse and laptop that had been reported stolen from Alexandria the night before.

All three people were arrested. Carole Taylor is still facing charges of being an accessory to a felony, Labelle is charged with grand theft, and both are charged with first-degree petty theft of more than $400 and obstructing police.

Taylor was ordered to pay $117.15 in restitution, and the court waived all fines and court costs.

In addition to the grand theft charge of which he was convicted, Taylor was charged with impersonation to deceive a law enforcement officer, first-degree petty theft of more than $400 and obstructing police.
