EUDORA, Kan. (AP) A 29-year-old man who was linked to 18 burglaries in Eudora will serve two years of probation.
District Judge Kay Huff on Tuesday also ordered David Allen Thomas to undergo a mental health evaluation as part of his probation. He also must pay $820 in restitution.
Thomas pleaded no contest in November to three felony counts and eight misdemeanor charges.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Eudora police in July linked Thomas to 18 burglaries of vehicles and sheds.
Two other Eudora residents were charged in the case.
If Thomas violates his probation, he faces 13 months in prison and possibly more time for a drug possession conviction.
