South Lebanon 'serial burglar' sentenced to 9 years in prison

SOUTH LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A South Lebanon man will spend nine years in prison after pleading to a 22-count indictment involving robbery, burglary and breaking and entering.

The Warren County Court of Common Pleas sentenced Eric Isaacs, 35, on Wednesday afternoon.

On February 18, Isaacs pled to a twenty-two count indictment involving, among other charges, four counts of burglary, eight counts of attempted burglary and one count of grand theft of a motor vehicle.

Isaacs was sentenced to serve two years for each burglary to run consecutive to each other, and 12 months for the remaining felony charges to run concurrent to one another, but consecutive to the burglary charges.

From August 27, 2013 to September 16, 2013, police say Isaacs burglarized 13 homes in subdivisions in South Lebanon and Lebanon. In each case, Isaacs used a pocket knife to cut open window screens to gain access to the victims' home while they were sleeping.

Once inside the homes, Isaacs stole electronic equipment and credit cards. During his last offense, Isaacs stole an ATV from a shed and crashed along the Lebanon Bike Trail. Isaacs sustained an injury to his eye and was apprehended by the Warren County Sheriff's Office.

Isaacs has a history of similar conduct involving robbery, burglary, and breaking and entering, and has been to prison on five different occasions.
