Man who Stole Pickup Truck in March Pled Guilty, Given 14 Years

Posted by wlpo on June 10, 2016

The La Salle man who stole a truck that was left running at a Beck’s in La Salle is headed to prison for more than a decade for his actions.

Thirty-one year old Ronald Catalanello Jr pled guilty today to hopping into another man’s pickup truck back in March after the owner left it unlocked and running at a gas pump. He also pled guilty to unlawful possession of a controlled substance, as he was accused of having heroin back in December.

For the stolen pickup truck, he was sentenced to 9 years in prison. The heroin charge added an additional 5 years. Judge H. Chris Ryan said the sentences will not be served simultaneously, meaning Catalanello will be in prison for about 14 years total.
