December 24, 2013 | 07:54 AMELKHORN — A 19-year-old Pell Lake man was sentenced Dec. 16 to two years of probation after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of theft.
As a condition of his probation, Joseph E. Glover, 20, must spend 60 days in jail with work-release privileges and complete 30 hours of community service.
Glover was also ordered to pay court costs.
Three additional felony charges of burglary were dismissed but read into the record.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Sept. 30, 2011, a Bloomfield couple returned to their home from vacation to find it had been burglarized.
The thieves stole several televisions, paintings and other electronics.
On Oct. 1, 2011, two other homeowners reported that their homes were burglarized.
One homeowner reported the following items stolen: two televisions, three wakeboards, an acoustic guitar, $150 in cash and other electronics. In the other home police saw that drawers had been opened, but the homeowner said nothing appeared to be missing.
In addition to Glover, the Walworth County District Attorney's Office charged four more people in connection with the burglaries.
The case against one of those men is still pending.
n Nathan Kivi, 21, was released from prison in July. He will remain under supervision from the Department of Corrections until February 2016. In Kenosha County, he was convicted of three felonies, two counts of burglary and one count of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
In Walworth County, Kivi was convicted of felony burglary. In Kenosha he was given a two year prison sentence followed by two years of extended supervision.
Dylan Gutierrez, 21, was convicted of three counts of burglary in Kenosha County. He was sentenced to two years in prison and was released in June. He will remain under supervision until August 2015. In August, he plead guilty to probation for one count of burglary.
Philip Palmer was convicted of burglary in Walworth County and was sentenced to two years of probation, which included 90 days in jail with work-release privileges.
In April, a burglary charge was filed against Jason Olrich, 30, of Kenosha. He is set for a jury trial in March.
On March 25, 2012, a Bloomfield Police Investigator interviewed Kivi who stated that Olrich lifted him into the second story of a home.
He said the only things they stole from that home were three bottles of wine.
When asked about other homes, Kivi said he burglarized homes with Glover and a man named Palmer.
Kivi said Palmer and Glover got involved because they heard Kivi and Guiterrez talking about the burglaries.
Palmer and Glover asked if they could "get in."
