ESCANABA — An Escanaba man who stole a vehicle from a local business received his sentence in Delta County Circuit Court Monday morning.

Eighteen-year-old Jeffrey Schultz was given nine months in jail and will have to pay about $10,700 in restitution. Schultz pleaded guilty to unlawful driving away of a vehicle and malicious destruction of property last month.

He was arrested by Escanaba Public Safety after they found him driving a vehicle stolen from a local business.
