CHAMBERLAIN — An Oacoma man was sentenced May 12 to 90 days in jail for burglarizing a Chamberlain restaurant in January 2019.
Kyle Cook, 30, will serve his sentence in 30-day increments with four years of probation and was also given a suspended five-year prison sentence.
Law enforcement responded on the morning of Jan. 4, 2019, to the Upper Crust pizza restaurant in Chamberlain after an employee reportedly arrived at the business to find about $300 missing from a safe.
According to court documents, video from the restaurant's security cameras showed Cook walking into the office the previous night and unplugging the cameras, using light from a flip phone while looking for power cords.
Officers found Cook at his Oacoma residence with a phone that resembled the one visible in security footage. He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, a Class 3 felony, and petty theft of less than $400, a Class 2 misdemeanor.
Cook pleaded guilty on May 12 to third-degree burglary, a Class 5 felony. He was ordered to pay $668.13 in fines and court costs and banned from Upper Crust for three years.
