GALLIPOLIS — A Jackson County man was sentenced to 11 months in prison for a breaking and entering charge Tuesday in the Gallia County Court of Common Pleas.
Between June 21 and June 28, 2015, Troy Zinn II, 23, trespassed on the property of the Four Seasons Veterinary Clinic in Thurman. While on the premises, several times, the defendant stole money from the establishment where he had previously been employed. Zinn was caught entering the establishment after hours on security cameras placed inside the office.
In February 2016, Zinn pleaded guilty to breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony, and was placed on probation for two years.
“After only being on community control fro two months, the defendant violated the terms of his community control by committing a theft offense at Walmart in Gallipolis,” said Gallia County Prosecutor Jeff Adkins. “The defendant also failed to enroll in a drug rehabilitation program as required. Immediately upon being notified of these violations, a warrant was issued for his arrest, his community control was revoked, and he was sentenced to begin serving 11 months in prison immediately. It is my hope that his young man will take this time to understand the path he is headed down and to begin to turn his life around.
“Victims of crime deserve justice and we are all pleased with the outcome.”
