A Casper man on probation for making counterfeit money, is accused of stealing a vehicle.

Alexander Locicero has been charged with one count of larceny.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say either late Saturday or early Sunday, the victim had reported her vehicle had been stolen, and that an old iPhone inside the vehicle had been reactivated.

Officers were able to trace the iPhone to a residence and found Donavan James with it.

The vehicle was later found on I-25.

James later admitted he was checking vehicles for unlocked doors and found the victim's vehicle with the keys still inside and took it.

He has also been charged with larceny.

It was later determined that James had an accomplice which was Locicero, who ended up being the driver when the vehicle was stolen.

When interviewed, Locicero said he was recently placed on probation for making counterfeit money, but did not report to probation because he had no intention of completing or participating in it.

He added that he accepted probation, in order to have some time out before his probation gets revoked and he is sent to prison.

Locicero is awaiting trial on $10,000 bond, and he could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
