A Cary man has been sentenced to three years in prison for burglarizing a house and barn in Woodstock in 2019.
Tony L. Brandt, 44, of the 5500 block of Oakwood Drive in Cary, pleaded guilty to theft between $500-$10,000, a Class 3 felony.
A grand jury indicted Brandt on felony charges of residential burglary, burglary and three counts of theft.
A bill of indictment alleges Brandt broke into a residence and a barn in the 2200 block of Greenwood Road in Woodstock on August 20, 2019. He stole several construction tools, the indictment said.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case and took Brandt into custody on February 5 after an arrest warrant was issued.
In April, prosecutors dropped four of the five felony charges against Brandt in exchange for his guilty plea, court records show.
He was sentenced to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections and will be required to pay $874 in court fines and fees.
Brandt remains held in the McHenry County Jail awaiting transfer to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
