CUYAHOGA FALLS — A Munroe Falls man accused of plotting to burglarize a Sackett Avenue home in September will spend a year in prison.
Summit County Common Pleas Judge Patricia Cosgrove sentenced 20-year-old Chandler G. Nelson to 12 months in prison Nov. 30, according to court records.
Nelson pleaded guilty to third-degree felony conspiracy to commit burglary on Nov. 22. As part of a plea agreement, a second-degree misdemeanor charge was dismissed, according to court records. Nelson was being held in Summit County Jail as of Dec. 6.
Cuyahoga Falls Police Lt. Gary Merton said Dec. 6 that no one else has been charged in the case.
Cuyahoga Falls police said they received information Sept. 20 that people were conspiring to commit a burglary at the home. While conducting a surveillance operation on the home, detectives saw a vehicle go past the residence numerous times with several occupants appearing to observe the home. Detectives began following the vehicle and coordinated patrol units to stop it. A traffic stop occurred on Broad Boulevard near Second Street. Two of the three individuals in the vehicle, including Nelson, jumped out and a foot pursuit occurred and Nelson was caught while the other person escaped.
A patrol officer was injured during the foot pursuit. The officer was treated and released at a local hospital.
