Man who took $1K in cash dropped on floor sentenced to probation
MINOT, N.D. — A Minot man has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years of supervised probation for stealing more than $1,000 in cash that had been dropped on the floor of a tool store by a customer.
The Minot Daily News reports 28-year-old Nicholas James Skelly was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to felony theft.
Authorities say a man who came into the Minot store to rent a trailer accidentally dropped his money, and Skelly picked it up and pocketed it.
Skelly was ordered to pay more than $2,000 in restitution and court costs.
