An Ellsworth teenager was placed on one year probation for misdemeanor theft in Pierce County Circuit Court earlier this month.
Geordan D. Godwin, 17, was also charged with burglary relating to a January incident in the Village of Ellsworth. That charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
According to the criminal complaint, David Heffron, who lives on Maple Street, reported on Feb. 16 to the Ellsworth Police Department several items were taken from his residence within the last month.
Heffron specifically mentioned an incident on Jan. 16 in which he was missing six individual six-packs of Michelob Golden Light bottles, a case and a half, with a value of $30. The beer was located in a spare refrigerator, he explained, along with extra pop, beer, milk, etc… and when he opened the refrigerator the next day, the refrigerator was empty.
On Feb. 21, Ellsworth police interviewed an alleged accomplice in the burglary. The accomplice admitted to participating in the burglary and said Godwin was with him. He admitted the idea was his and he told Godwin the night of the burglary, “It should be easy. All you’ve got to do is go in, get the beer and come out.”
