A 34-year-old man was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing a truck, trailer and a skid steer from a paving company in Richmond.
Daniel P. Seaberg, 34, of Cartersville, was originally charged with two counts of theft, a Class 1 felony and the other a Class 2 felony, possession of a stolen vehicle and criminal damage to property.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a theft on February 9, 2018 at a paving company in Richmond. Deputies located a stolen skid steer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin after using GPS data from it.
Detectives were able to obtain surveillance footage from a gas station that led to the identification of Seaberg as one of the suspects who stole the truck, trailer and skid steer, prosecutors said.
Seaberg pleaded guilty to theft between $10,000 and $100,000, a Class 2 felony, and was sentenced to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections by McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge.
His other charges were dismissed following a plea agreement on December 23. He was sentenced as a Class X offender based on his prior criminal history, prosecutors added.
Seaberg was also ordered to pay $45,000 in restitution and $650 in court costs.
The case was investigated by members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by Robert Ladd of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
