PRINCETON — A Wyanet man have been placed on five years probation and ordered to serve four months in the Bureau County Jail after pleading guilty to the Class 2 felony of burglary.

Ian R. Levan, 24, entered his guilty plea July 23 in Bureau County Court before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. In addition to the five years of TASC probation and the four months in the county jail, Levan was also ordered to pay $927 in court costs and $625 restitution from his bond. He was also ordered to attend treatment with drug and alcohol counseling.

Levan was represented in court by Public Defender Michael Henneberry. Prosecuting the case was State’s Attorney Patrick Herrmann.

This was Levan’s first felony arrest.

On Nov. 30, 2013, a Princeton police officer observed a male walking around a Princeton business at approximately 1:30 a.m. After stopping the individual and trying to ascertain the man’s intentions, other Princeton Police officers discovered the nearby business had a broken window to its premises. Further investigation revealed Levan had entered through the window with the intent to steal. Because of an interior security system, Levan was scared off without stealing anything.
