Man Sentenced in Stolen Car Case
Jan. 23, 2001
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A Kansas City man was sentenced to four months in prison Monday for helping former Chiefs kick returner Tamarick Vanover transport a stolen vehicle.
Norbert G. Scarlett, 28, also was sentenced to four months of home detention after he leaves prison.
Scarlett pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the interstate transport of a stolen vehicle.
He admitted that on March 10, 1999, he drove a stolen Ford Expedition from Kansas City to Lake City, Fla. on behalf of Vanover, who sold the vehicle to a third man. The vehicle had been stolen from a Kansas City Ford dealership.
Last November, Vanover, 26, pleaded guilty to one federal count of aiding and abetting the sale of a stolen vehicle that crossed state lines. He was sentenced to two months in jail, two months in home detention, and three years under supervised release.
