WARSAW — A man will serve four years in prison after burglarizing six storage units.
Jordan William Dallie, 30, 420 N. Byrkit St., Mishawaka, was charged with six counts of burglary, all level 5 felonies.
Dallie was sentenced in Kosciusko Superior Court One on Monday, Aug. 3.
On Nov. 10, 2019, a burglary was reported to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office. According to court documents, six storage units were forcibly broken into.
During a separate investigation on Nov. 11, 2019, Dallie admitted to officers that he had broken into storage units at Pack Rat Self-Storage, Syracuse. When asked how he broke into the storage units, Dallie said he had bolt cutters that he used to cut the locks. The items he stole from the storage units included tools, two car batteries and a television.
In court, both Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Brad Voelz and Defense Attorney Jay Rigdon discussed Dallie’s substance abuse history and how that played a role in Dallie committing the burglaries.
“I want to shake my act up and get clean,” said Dallie. “It’s time to save my life.”
For each burglary count, Kosciusko Superior Court One Judge David Cates sentenced Dallie to five years in the Indiana Department of Correction, with one year of each count suspended on probation. All six counts will be served concurrently. Cates also recommended Dallie for the Recovery While Incarcerated program during his incarceration.
