PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An Eagle Butte woman has been sentenced for stealing a pickup truck from a dealership just weeks after completing a prison sentence for stealing a different vehicle.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says 34-year-old Melissa Wolf Black took the vehicle from Lindskov Motors last June after expressing an interest in buying it.

She was given a test drive by an employee who wouldn’t let her drive because she appeared to be drunk and later took the keys without permission.

Police later in the day stopped Wolf Black in the stolen truck. Authorities say she was driving drunk and ran a red light.

Wolf Black pleaded guilty in January to larceny and was recently sentenced to a year and three months in prison to be followed by two years of supervised release.
