Two men who burglarized a number of homes in the Old Lair Road area earlier this year have been sentenced to 10 years each.

Thomas D. Perysian and Jeremy Puckett were sentenced last week on multiple charges related to the burglaries.

Charges against Persyian included second degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking over $300, first degree burglary, first degree criminal mischief and theft of controlled substance.

Puckett's charges also included complicity to commit burglary and complicity to commit theft by unlawful taking.

Perysian was sentenced to five and 10 years on the various charges. However, the sentences will run concurrent to equal 10 years. Pucketts sentence also equals 10 years.

Each are required to pay restitution to the victims, Shanna Whalen, Kevin and Debbie Landrum, Reynolds and Sandy Gifford, Paul and Virginia Tucker, Sherry Ankeny and Beverly Crosthwaite.

Probation was denied.
