GALLIPOLIS — One of the suspects indicted for the Dec. 28, 2006 breaking and entering and theft at Cliffside Golf Club, 100 Cliffside Drive, Gallipolis, faces prison time after pleading guilty to several charges in the Gallia County Common Pleas court.
Joshua D. Queen, 24, 189 Daft Road, Patriot, was indicted on Feb. 7, 2007 on two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of theft and one count safecracking, in which Queen reportedly broke into the golf club and stole over $500 from a safe.
He was also charged with breaking into Dyer Brothers Garage in Patriot and stealing 50 foot sections of copper lead.
Queen pled guilty to two counts of breaking and entering and one count of the safecracking. In consideration of the plea, both counts of theft were dismissed.
He was sentenced to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections for 11 months for one count of breaking and entering, seven months for the other count of breaking and entering and 17 months for safecracking.
It was ordered that Queen serve the first count concurrently with the other two counts, which will be served consecutively.
Queen also pled guilty to another theft in connection with a Dec. 19, 2006, indictment for stealing two aluminum truck wheels from Red’s Rollen Garage in Bidwell.
He was sentenced to 11 months to be served concurrently with the other sentences for a total of 24 months in prison.
Queen was ordered to pay restitution to both all three parties and pay all court costs.
The cases are still ongoing for the other two suspects in the Cliffside theft: Dahryl Justin Keller, 22, 570 Blessing Road, Patriot, who was charged with one count of complicity and on count of safecracking, and Gwenda L. Dyer, 22, 259 Blessing Road, Patriot, who was charged with complicity.
