A Stow man and a Kent man have been sentenced to prison terms for their involvement with a nine-county burglary ring.
According to Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas records, 32-year-old David A, Quinones, a resident of Colony Park Place in Stow, was sentenced to 10 years in prison July 10 and 39-year-old Gregory R. Cochran, a resident of Louise Avenue in Kent, was sentenced to six-and-a-half years July 6.
Quinones pleaded no contest and was found guilty of 38 felony counts June 18 and Cochran pleaded guilty to 20 felony counts June 1 in connection with the case.
Both men were incarcerated in the Lorain Correctional Institutional as of July 22, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections.
According to an indictment filed last December, Quinones and Cochran directed the ring that was responsible for 39 burglaries in Cuyahoga, Huron, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wood counties between Nov. 1, 2012 and May 1, 2014, with stolen goods totaling about $220,000.
Others charged included five Cleveland men and a Medina man. According to court records, the case against one Cleveland man is still pending while the other men have all either pleaded guilty or no contest to felony charge.
The case was investigated by the Cuyahoga County Organized Crime Task Force, which formed in 2013, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.
