KODIAK -- A 19-year-old Ouzinkie man who used a city-owned forklift to pull a vehicle out of a ditch has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports Pete Muller Jr. pleaded guilty last week to criminal trespass and vehicle theft.

Prosecutors say Muller was under the influence of alcohol April 23 when he took the forklift and a truck.

The vehicles received an estimated $1,000 in damage.

Muller also was sentenced to probation of three years and 80 hours of community service work. A $1,000 fine was suspended.

Ouzinkie is a community of 178 on the west coast of Spruce Island northwest of the city of Kodiak.
