Southern IL man to sentenced 10 years for home burglary

JACKSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A southern Illinois man was sentenced to ten years in prison for a home burglary, according to the Jackson County state's attorney.

Armand M. Clemmons, 34, of Dongola, Illinois was charged in Jackson County Circuit Court with residential burglary.

Clemmons will serve a three year period of mandatory supervised release upon his release.

On May 27, 2014, Jackson County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a home on Highway 149 in rural Murphysboro, Illinois, for the report of a residential burglary.

The victim said he was working in an un-attached garage on his property.

As he approached his residence, he observed two men leave his home carrying property. The two men fled the scene in a teal colored Chevrolet Malibu.

During the investigation, the suspect's car was spotted at a business in Murphysboro.

Deputies found Armand Clemmons, hiding inside that business. Officers were able to recover some of the stolen property from that business.

During an interview, the defendant admitted his involvement in the burglary. He also implicated a co-defendant, Ramon Rodriguez.

During the investigation, officers with the sheriff's office and the Murphysboro Police Department found Ramon Rodriguez and executed a search warrant at the home where he was staying.

Additional stolen property was recovered from the home.

Officers say Ramon Rodriguez admitted his involvement in the burglary as well.

Rodriguez previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department and the Murphysboro Police Department.
