FAIRBANKS -- A man has been sentenced to jail for stealing a friend's jewelry to make a dental grill for himself.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says 30-year-old Kejuan Bruce Gaddis will spend three months in jail for the theft and one month in jail for a probation violation. He also has been ordered to pay restitution.
According to charging documents, Gaddis took $3,200 in jewelry from Jennifer Silva, a friend who had been letting him store things in her home. He later brought it to Bishop's Jewelry to have it melted down.
Silva, who came to court for the hearing Wednesday, says the gold was recovered but the diamonds never were.
