A man from Reeds Spring pleaded guilty last week to his part in a burglary ring in which several pieces of heavy equipment, tools and weapons were stolen after a jury convicted found him guilty of drug charges.

Kevin Eugene Chambers, 42, was charged with receiving stolen property, theft and drug charges following raids on property on Joes Lane Road and Old Highway 160 in October of 2010.

Prosecutor's amended the receiving stolen property charges to theft as part of a plea agreement after the jury verdict.

Chambers, who is a prior and persistent offender, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on the drug charges, and two seven year sentences on each of the theft charges.  Those sentences will run concurrent (at the same time) to each other.
