FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Two men pleaded "not guilty" in Fairbanks Superior Court today on charges related to a 90 mph chase through ice and snow on Chena Ridge.
23 year old Dametrey Rice and 22 year old Shawn Kirkvold are both charged with vehicle theft and burglary.
Alaska State Troopers say on November 11th a construction business reported two trucks had been stolen sometime in the night.
Officials spotted one of the vehicles driving on Chena Pump Road, and a chase ensued.
Troopers laid out spike strips, causing the truck to crash into a row of mailboxes.
Officials say the driver ran; and after a brief chase, Kirkvold was found hiding in a shed.
Troopers also arrested Rice shortly after as an accomplice, and later recovered the second vehicle.
