Michael Neely Sentenced After Admitting To Stealing Camper
A Las Vegas man is heading to prison for stealing a camper in Casper.
Fifty-one-year-old Michael Neely was given a one-and-a-half to three year prison sentence, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of larceny.
Casper police say in May, Neely along with his accomplice Donnie Neice, used a pick-up truck to steal the trailer from the 1200 block of Hawthorne Street in Casper.
The owner of the trailer saw it being pulled away, and called law enforcement who eventually caught up to Neely and Neice.
Investigators say initially both of them gave officers false names and identification, and had only been in Casper for a few weeks, working at a ranch outside of the city.
Prosecutors say their plan was to steal the camper for Neice, so that he and his girlfriend could live in it at the ranch.
During the investigation, officers discovered Neice was wanted out of Las Vegas for attempted homicide.
He has pleaded guilty to one count of grand larceny and is waiting to be sentenced.
