The fifth arrest of a Jones County man appeared to be enough to revoke at least a portion of his probation to prison.

Marlon Hoskins started the new year back in Superior Court Jan. 2 for another felony charge. This time it was for second-degree burglary, and his probation was revoked to prison for three years as a result. It has not been quite two years since Hoskins was sentenced Feb. 27, 2012, to a total of 10 years probation on four felony charges that spanned 2010-12.

The sentences broke down to 10 years for the offense of criminal attempt to commit burglary, five years for the offense of robbery, five years for the offense of theft by taking felony, and five years each two counts forgery in the first degree. They all ran concurrent for a total of 10 years.

The most recent offense for the defendant was a burglary that took place Oct. 29 at a shop on Gray Highway. A report by Capt. Billy Mitchell stated that, while entering a gate at his grandfather’s property, the complainant heard someone in a storage shed. The offender ran when confronted, but the complainant secured the suspect’s vehicle and waited for the sheriff’s department to arrive.

The vehicle was traced back to its owner, which ultimately led to Hoskins’ Nov. 6 arrest for burglary.
