WENATCHEE — A man whose mental illness led him to steal a Cashmere city truck and crash it through road signs, fences and a garage door must pay $12,000 to the city and its insurers.

Billy M. Rose, 42, of Wenatchee pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree burglary, malicious mischief and DUI in the Nov. 14 theft of a work truck from a city shop at 200 Olive St., in which he drove the truck through the roll-up garage door, ran over a speed-limit sign, broke through a residential wood fence and uprooted a chain-link fence before being stopped by a Chelan County sheriff’s deputy.
