Minot man sentenced for theft
Kenneth Allen Talford, 32, Minot, was sentenced on Thursday to three years in prison, all suspended but 60 days, and three years of supervised probation for Class C felony theft in July.
Judge Richard Hagar gave him credit for three days already served in the Ward County Jail. Hagar also ordered Talford to pay $605 in court costs, including $80 in restitution.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Talford had been working as a housekeeper at a southwest Minot hotel and stole a diamond ring valued at $2,686 from a room he had been assigned to clean. Talford later pawned the ring for $80 at a local pawn shop. Police recovered the ring.
