North Pole man ordered to pay $100K in restitution for theft

December 24, 2018

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A 26-year-old North Pole man convicted of stealing guns, coins and jewelry from a home was ordered to pay more than $100,000 in restitution.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Shanon Stowell also was sentenced in state court last week to six years and seven months in prison in a plea arrangement with prosecutors for the 2017 theft.

The sentence is on top of a 10-year federal prison term Stowell is serving for stealing 50 guns and gun parts from a Fairbanks storage space in 2015. He was sentenced June 29 in the federal case and ordered to pay more than $70,000 in restitution.

Defense attorney Natasha Norris says Stowell has worked hard while in custody to finish classes, take treatment seriously and move on once he’s done serving time.
