Last of 4 men receives sentence

The last of four men has been sentenced for breaking into a Trafalgar-area home multiple times before the homeowner caught and shot one of them.

Christopher Shepherd, Zachary Chittum, Bryan Wooldridge and Christopher Keller each pleaded guilty to a charge of theft after they were arrested in 2011.

Police said the men broke into a vacant home on County Road 575W three times in August 2011 and stole several large appliances. After the repeated break-ins, the homeowner set up a motion sensor at the empty house, which was near his own home.
