Five defendants were sentenced and one pleaded guilty before Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O’Connor earlier this week.
Chanc Carter, 25, of Bellefontaine was sentenced to two years in prison for grand theft.
In June, Carter (pictured) was arrested on felony charges of receiving stolen property. He was helped by his girlfriend Aushele Sarver of Lakeview.
Officers began to investigate after receiving complaints of theft from vehicles on Holly Lane in Russells Point.
Various items were taken from multiple vehicles.
A homeowner on East Elliot Road then called and requested a report for several items taken from his home.
Three firearms, a Nintendo Wii, and a Blue Ray disc player were among the items taken.
The complainant stated he had friends over for a pool party and learned that Carter may have been responsible for the thefts.
After a brief investigation, officers went to Sarver’s home.
Authorities found several of the items reported missing from the vehicles along with the Blue Ray player and Nintendo Wii sitting in the living room.
The firearms were found under the bed he was sleeping in.
