A Willard thief will spend the next four to six months in a locked-down treatment center.
As part of his three years of intensive probation, Jesse H. Moore, 24, of 415 W. Tiffin St., will be in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF), a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse education and treatment.
In late August, Moore pleaded guilty to theft for an incident between March 5 and 6. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss one count each of breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
"He's got some sticky fingers. He likes to take things and sell them. We think a CBCF is a proper resolution," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said.
Moore, who declined to speak on his own behalf Tuesday, was ordered to pay $50 in restitution to the male victim to replace some padlocks and $100 in restitution to the Willard Police Department.
Credited with serving 114 days in the Huron County Jail, Moore earlier was screened and accepted into a CBCF.
