Man Who Stole Nicholas Cage's Car Gets 5 Years

Arnold, Mo. – A man from Arnold has been sentenced to five years in prison for stealing a Porsche owned by actor Nicholas Cage.

Police found the $100,000 car last year submerged in a lake, after Michael Gramling stole it from a parking lot in Arnold. The car was being delivered to Pennsylvania at the time.

Gramling pleaded guilty last year. Another defendant, 21-year-old Scott Air Force Base airman Robert Clerkin, was previously tried on stealing charges in a
military court and sentenced to six months in the stockade.
