WARSAW — A Warsaw man was sentenced in Kosciusko Superior One Court Thursday, Dec. 6, in one case with three counts of residential entry.
Marcus Deunte Brooks, 2441 W. CR 250S 61, Warsaw, was charged with three counts of residential entry, all level 6 felonies; and two counts of theft and one count of attempted theft, all class A misdemeanors.
On Jan. 8, officers responded to a report of burglary at a Warsaw residence. The homeowner said someone stole two televisions and an Amazon fire stick.
Brooks and three other subjects burglarized the residence. According to the affidavit of probable cause, Brooks sold two televisions to Cashland on the same day the burglary occurred.
On Jan. 10, officers responded to a second burglary report at a Warsaw residence. Brooks and one other subject burglarized the residence. An XBox, XBox games, and jewelry were stolen. Brooks sold the items to Cashland on the same day.
Brooks and another subject attempted burglarizing another residence, but upon breaking in, they found a sleeping subject and fled.
Defense Attorney Jack Birch said Brooks is currently participating in the Community Corrections program and asked the judge to allow Brooks to continue doing so.
Brooks was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections; however, he is allowed to serve the sentence through Community Corrections or work release. He was also ordered to pay $409 in restitution to one of the victims in this case.
