A young Ossineke man is headed to prison for breaking into three homes in the area.

Gary Floyd Wise, 20 and a couple of his friends committed the break ins in 2018.

Police used Wise’s footprints to track him down from the scene of one of the crimes, which was near his own residence. He apologized for his actions Monday, prior to receiving 25 months to 15 years in prison. Wise blamed part of his troubles on alcohol and drug abuse.

Prosecutor Ed Black objected to boot camp, which would allow Wise to get out of prison much sooner.

Wise was sentenced to 6 months jail and placed on two years probation in early 2018 for breaking into at least 10 vehicles on the night of September 26, 2017.
