Man sentenced to 10 years

A Tiffin man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to numerous burglary-related charges.

Jimmy D. Halcomb Jr., 28, was sentenced by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Kelbley to serve a total prison term of 121 months after pleading guilty to charges stemming from three separate cases.

According to court documents, Halcomb entered a guilty plea last week to three counts of breaking and entering and one count each of grand theft, safecracking, having weapons while under disability and receiving stolen property. In June, he also was convicted of charges of having weapons while under disability, receiving stolen property, attempted receiving stolen property and trafficking in marijuana. Those charges stemmed from two cases.

Halcomb was arrested in November after a search warrant at a North Washington Street address unveiled drugs, stolen guns and other stolen property believed to be connected to numerous break-ins in Tiffin and Seneca County.

According to one of Halcomb’s indictments, businesses broken into included Heck’s Heating and Plumbing, Jazzercise and Mad River Antiques.

During his sentencing last week, he was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $2,240 to Mad River Antiques.
