WILMINGTON — A local man received an 18-month prison term for a residential burglary in the Warren Knolls Subdivision on Wilmington’s west end.
John H. Pinkerton III, 31, of Wilmington, was found guilty of both burglary and of breaking-and-entering for the Feb. 13, 2017 incident.
On that date, Wilmington police were notified of a burglary-in-progress and also obtained a witness’ description of the suspect leaving the scene with a red backpack. WPD Chief Detective Josh Riley patrolled the area and observed the described suspect, according to an affidavit in the case file.
The backpack contained two jewelry boxes, missing from the residence where other boxes on a dresser top had been gone through, police said.
Court papers state that prosecutors will not oppose a judicial release prior to the term being fully served if Pinkerton has a positive record in prison.
The defendant was granted 107 days credit toward the prison term for time he already spent at the Clinton County Jail in the case.
