Tylor Jacob Farr, 27, of Alma, pled guilty Monday to second degree home invasion at a pre-trial conference in Clare County’s Circuit Court. Other charges were dismissed, Clare County Prosecutor Michelle Ambrozaitis said.
When he was arrested August 5, Farr had been charged with two counts of burglary, forced entry, safe breaking and habitual offender in connection with the February 5, 2012 breaking and entering complaint at the Lake home of Donald Jones.
One source said Farr had broken into a safe in the Jones home and taken $9,100 in cash.
“We received the complaint from the homeowner around 7 p.m. February 5th,” Sheriff Wilson said Monday.
Farr was released on bond August 6.
Prosecutor Ambrozaitis said Farr was charged on 8-2-12 with one count of Safe Breaking, one count of Home Invasion 2nd offense, and with a habitual offender 4th offense notice.
Ambrozaitis added that Farr had waived his August 20 preliminary exam in District Court, and that safe breaking charges were dropped and restitution of $9,100.00 to the victim was part of the plea agreement in Circuit Court Monday. Farr also waived a Circuit Court Arraignment on August 27.
“He will be sentenced October 8, 2012 at 9:45a.m.,” Ambrozaitis said.
