A man who stole more than half a million dollars in silver and gold coins from an elderly Chinook man, who is a quadriplegic, received 10 years in the Montana State Prison Tuesday afternoon in District Court in Blaine County.

Teddy Young Sr., 52, received 25 years with 15 years suspended for seven counts of felony theft. District Judge Yvonne Laird also ordered him to pay $665,640 in restitution for stealing that estimated amount in coins and bars made of silver and gold over a two-year period.
