A man charged in a 2016 theft, and more recently, a car theft last year, pleaded guilty Tuesday for a reduced sentence.
Geoffrey M. Alter, 47, was sentenced by Juneau Superior Court Judge Amy Mead to serve two years with a third year suspended contingent on his good behavior after pleading guilty to a charge of first-degree theft.
The charge comes from a case in 2016 where Alter, along with others, broke into a house and stole a safe, cash and jewelry estimated to be worth more than $150,000, Assistant District Attorney Bailey Woolfstead said in court.
Alter was recently arrested on Dec. 10 outside the Douglas Breeze In alongside Dylan K. Fears, 21, for allegedly stealing a truck.
