A man who was previously convicted on burglary charges in Pulaski Township was sentenced Tuesday to two years behind bars.
22 year old Travis Hicks moved to the area in August from Texas.
He took up residence at a home with a friend, 55 year old Tommy Yates.
It wasn’t long before residents started complaining that items were missing from their barns and homes, all located within about a mile of where where the two were living.
After an investigation into the thefts, police searched Yates’ property and that’s when they found many of the missing items.
Yates also faces charges.
He is accused of destroying or concealing evidence of the crimes.
Yates has pled not guilty. A final pretrial conference for his case is set for Nov. 18.
