Decatur resident Isaac J. Gase was given four concurrent two-year prison sentences on Wednesday in Common Pleas Court at Van Wert, Ohio, for convictions of burglarizing four houses in Van Wert County in May of 2010.
Gase, 29, also faces similar charges in Mercer County.
His accomplice, Crystal Stauffer of Adams County, was given two years in prison last year for her part in the Van Wert County crimes.
According to a report from the bailiff of Van Wert Common Pleas Court, Gase and Stauffer said they committed the crimes to steal items that they then sold for money used to buy drugs.
