Fort Polk man sentenced for burglary on Army base

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a 20-year-old Fort Polk man to a year in prison for a burglary on the central Louisiana military base.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says Dakota Cole Yarbrough was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik on one count of simple burglary.

Haik also ordered Yarbrough to pay $164.10 in restitution and to serve two years of supervised release once the prison time is over.

According to evidence presented at the July 17 guilty plea, Yarbrough entered a home at Fort Polk without permission and removed a laptop computer and wallet containing credit cards and bank cards. He also entered a vehicle outside another home on the base and removed $60 and a debit card.
