Ignoring house arrest lands man in jailby Lisa Brown
COUNTY - Just two weeks after receiving a conditional sentence, a Conquerall Mills man was back in court June 27 for ignoring his house arrest.
Carmen Clayton Lohnes admitted breaching his order and was sentenced to serve 72 days in jail.
He had 172 days of his six-month sentence remaining. Following his release from custody, he'll go back to serving the final 100 days on house arrest.
Mr. Lohnes, 22, was arrested June 26 after police checked his father's home in Upper Northfield and discovered he was not present.
He'd been sentenced on a total of nine charges on June 13. Those included several thefts of copper wire, forging his father's GST cheque and skipping court appearances.
The most serious count was a break and enter into a seasonal residence in Cookville back in April, when Mr. Lohnes stripped the copper piping for the home's hot water heating system, doing about $6,500 worth of damage.
The judge issued a restitution order to cover the damage.
Mr. Lohnes was also ordered to take counselling and stay clear of alcohol and drugs. The conditional sentence is to be followed by 18 months on probation.
