FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks man has been sentenced to a year in prison for stealing a snowmobile from a neighborhood.
Twenty-two-year-old Ralph Luke-Holmberg was charged with felony vehicle theft but he reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty Monday to misdemeanor vehicle theft.
Fairbanks police arrested Luke-Holmberg in February. He was found with a stolen snowmobile.
He had been convicted three months earlier of stealing a snowmobile and joyriding through Creamer's Field, a wildlife area on the north side of the city. The machine and a fence were damaged in that incident.
He was sentenced to a year in prison, with all time suspended, in the first case.
