A morning truck theft could land a suspect in prison for as many as 20 years.
Kyle Red Tomahawk, 23, of Fort Yates, is charged with Class A felony theft in excess of $50,000 as the truck Bismarck Police say he stole is reportedly worth about $58,000.
Police responded to a Bismarck golf course at about 9:45 a.m. Monday for the reported theft. A man told police his truck had been stolen from the parking lot and he was tracking it with OnStar.
Police found the man's truck at a south Bismarck gas station. Officers stopped Red Tomahawk and 25-year-old Tucker Archambault. Video footage reportedly showed Red Tomahawk exiting the truck's driver side at the gas station. Court documents say he told police he saw the keys in the truck's ignition at the golf course and took the truck to drive it to Fort Yates.
His bond was set at $1,500 Tuesday. A Class A felony in North Dakota is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $20,000.
Archambault is charged with misdemeanor false information to law enforcement, related to a false name he allegedly gave police in the incident.
