Local man sentenced for stolen pickup and jetboat

A Prince George man caught with a pickup truck pulling a jetboat, both stolen in Alberta, was sentenced Tuesday to eight months in jail.

Daniel Arvey Webster, 32, was arrested on Dec. 12, 2018 following a prolonged pursuit that began just east of McBride and ended in the Vavenby area near Clearwater and involved a spike belt, a tracking dog and RCMP air services.

Webster, who has remained in custody since his arrest, was issued the term for a count of possessing stolen property over $5,000 while counts of fleeing police and dangerous driving were stayed.

He must also serve one year probation upon completing his sentence and is prohibited from driving for five years for a series of offences committed in Calgary.

Co-accused Michael Arthur John Rickett continues to face three counts of possessing stolen property and is to appear in McBride provincial court on June 7.
