A Bellevue man must pay $3,400 in restitution and a $250 fine for a fall church break-in.
Dylan J. Natole, 19, of 7135 County Road 175, and two adult male defendants broke into a Bellevue church and stole two guitars, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.
Just after the Oct. 5 incident, the men took the instruments to a Sandusky pawn store, Woodruff said. The owner kept them stored in the back because he suspected police would be searching for the unique guitars.
"They were vintage guitars," Woodruff said.
Natole pleaded guilty March 7 to breaking and entering. The state dismissed a theft charge in a plea agreement.
The defendant must serve 75 days in the Huron County Jail, where he is expected to report in June, as part of his three years of probation.
"He's eligible for work release," Woodruff said.
