Everett Seth Blake pled guilty to a 2011 Jones County burglary and a theft by taking charge that occurred in January in Superior Court March 21. He received a total of five years for the crimes with the first 180 days in the Jones County Law Enforcement Center, suspended upon entry into a State Probation Detention Center for 180 days. The remainder of the sentence may be served on probation.
The 2011 burglary was committed with a co-defendant, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime. The co-defendant was sentenced in juvenile court.
A report of the burglary by Deputy Shannon Moseley states the juvenile was wanted for the theft of a 2003 GMC Yukon and three firearms that belonged to a family member. The same day, two diamond rings and cash were taken from another family member.
The truck was found, and the juvenile was taken into custody after being seen walking the railroad tracks at Cumslo and Skinner roads. Following his arrest, the suspect implicated Blake in the crimes.
