Fairbanks man accused in truck theft

Posted: Sunday, September 17, 2000

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A Fairbanks man apparently decided he didn't need to buy a vehicle, just make a copy of the key and drive off the lot with it.

Fairbanks Police Lt. Dusty Johnson said Roger Bouling, 18, allegedly had a key made during a 40-minute test drive from a used car lot Wednesday, then returned later and drove off with the truck without permission.

Bouling, 18, and Ryan Stratton, 19, both of Fairbanks, were arrested Thursday night after a day-long search for a stolen blue 1996 Dodge truck and a short foot chase.

Both Stratton and Bouling were charged with first-degree vehicle theft. Stratton, who was driving the truck when police stopped it, was also charged with felony eluding, evading police and probation violation.
