HART – A 38-year-old Fremont man pleaded “no contest” to receiving and concealing stolen property $1,000-$20,000 in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Dec. 2, in connection to the theft of a Department of Natural Resources snowmobile last May.

Peter John Terveer, of 231 W. Michigan Ave., also faced a felony charge of larceny $1,000-$20,000, which was dismissed in a plea agreement.

The snowmobile was being used to groom Nordic ski trails at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex. It was stolen from a mechanic’s home in Oceana County’s Greenwood Township. The mechanic’s trailer was also stolen.

The 2012 Ski-Doo was loaned to the sports complex by the DNR.

“He claimed he didn’t know it was stolen,” said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

Terveer’s plea agreement calls for a delayed sentence, said Bizon. If he abides by a term of probation, the felony conviction will be dismissed and he can plead to a misdemeanor of larceny less than $1,000.

Judge Robert D. Springstead will determine if Terveer receives any jail time at sentencing, which is set for Jan. 27 at 8:30 a.m.
