Minnesota Woman Gets 3-5 Years in Jail for Truck Theft in Schuyler

SCHUYLER, Neb. – A Minnesota woman was given prison time for stealing a truck found in Schuyler, court records say.

26-year-old Brittany Beecroft of Montevideo, Min. was given 3-5 years in prison for the theft of a Toyota Tundra, licensed in Minnesota.

She’s credited with 114 days served and must pay restitution of $780.

Her alleged conspirator, 30-year-old Victor Sanchez Jr. of Granite Falls, Min. reached a plea agreement with prosecutors that found him guilty of a lesser felony theft charge than he was originally accused of.

Records say Sanchez and Beecroft attempted to cash a check without an ID inside a Schuyler store. Documents say store employees told the police that the two came in a Toyota Tundra. The truck was reported as stolen when police looked up the vehicle.

The records say police attempted to stop both of them and Beecroft complied with the order, while Sanchez attempted to flee.

The documents say police eventually arrested Sanchez, using three officers to subdue him.

Sanchez will be sentenced on April 18th.
