A Zanesville man is going to prison after pleading guilty to a rash of church break-ins. 32-year-old Scott Roberts was sentenced to 12 years in prison and ordered to pay over $10,000 in restitution. Judge Kelly Cottrill says ordered post release control for Roberts for three years. In December of 2011 Roberts pleaded guilty to 36 difference charges including breaking and entering, theft, burglary and theft of credit cards and checks. Roberts was arrested in October after numerous church break-ins and several home burglaries.
