HART — A 30-year-old Hart man pleaded guilty Wednesday, Jan. 20, in 27th Circuit Court to two counts of breaking and entering with intent.

Aaron Vaughn Jacobs, of 7044 92nd Ave., testified that he stole tools and $700 in cash from shop on Oceana Drive in the City of Hart, Oct. 22, and a chainsaw from a barn on Hammett Road in Crystal Township, Oct. 28.

In exchange for his guilty pleas to the two counts, two counts of larceny in a building were dismissed. Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon said he agrees to cap Jacobs’ incarceration at the midpoint of the sentencing guidelines as part of the plea agreement. Judge Anthony A. Monton said the guidelines are five to 23 months, and paying restitution will be part of his sentence.

Sentencing is set for March 14 at 9 a.m.
