      Kirksville man sentenced for stealing semi, taking joy ride

      Chris Myers, 38, of Kirksville

      The Kirksville man who stole a semi and took a joy ride through a cemetery, damaging nine grave stones in the process, will now spend the next four years in prison.

      According to online court records, Chris Myers, 38, plead guilty to tampering with a motor vehicle, first and second degree property damage, vandalism, and driving while revoked. He was sentenced in Adair County Circuit Court earlier this week.

      In addition to the four year sentence, Myers was also ordered to enter into a long-term treatment program, and pay $1,700 in restitution.
