Local burglar sentenced to prison

Five defendants were sentenced and two pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor earlier this week.

Matthew Cheadle (pictured), 31, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay restitution for burglary.

Cheadle and Jason Overholt, 34, of Bellefontaine, were caught burglarizing a home south of Bellefontaine last winter.

On January 18th, Larry Robinaugh, 70, of 1416 County Road 1, came home and confronted Overholt in the living room.

Robinaugh held the suspect at gunpoint and called 911 to report the burglary.

A nearby deputy from the Logan County Sheriff's Office responded and took Overholt into custody.

During the arrest, Robinaugh went upstairs and found Cheadle.

He held Cheadle at gunpoint. Moments later, the deputy handcuffed Cheadle.

Both suspects were wearing masks, hooded jackets, and gloves.

They entered the home with a prybar.

Overholt and Cheadle were charged with felony counts of aggravated burglary and possession of criminal tools.

Nothing was taken from Robinaugh's residence.

Authorities believe the suspects entered the home from Lake Avenue.

A Bellefontaine Police Department K-9 helped track the burglars' path.

In February, Overholt pleaded guilty to burglary. In March, he was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay restitution.

Leonard Radford, 35, of Columbus, was sentenced to eight months in prison and a one-year license suspension for possession of drugs.

Morgan Brown, 23, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to the West Central Community Based Correctional Facility, five years community control, and ordered to pay restitution, court costs, and attorney fees for felonious assault.

Michael Beck, 26, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to 60 days in the Logan County Jail, five years community control, and ordered to pay a $500 fine, court costs, restitution, and attorney fees for burglary.

Angela Robinson, 42, of Bellefontaine, was placed in the prosecutor’s pretrial diversion program for theft.

Ryan Rose, 31, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to OVI and eluding a police officer.

Dale Evans, 29, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to burglary.

Presentence investigations were ordered and sentencings are scheduled for August 26th.
