GALLIPOLIS, Ohio - A Franklin County man charged in connection with two summer break-ins in Gallia County was sentenced in the Gallia County Common Pleas Court.

Charles E. Logan, 43, Galloway, Ohio, was sentenced late last week to serve a two-and-a-half year sentence in the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction for breaking into Baxter’s Harley-Davidson and Bridgeport Equipment and Tool July 31, according to the Daily Tribune. He received credit for 125 days served.

Logan was also ordered to pay $917.15 in restitution to Baxter’s Harley-Davidson.

Deputies with the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office were first made aware of the break-in after a suspect who was fleeing a state trooper – first on an orange Harley-Davidson, then on foot – was apprehended during the early morning hours of July 31.

Reportedly, the suspect, later identified as Logan, was wearing Harley Davidson clothing. After being patted down, a large sum of money was removed from his pockets. The owners of the store later confirmed that a 2012 orange Harley-Davidson had been stolen from their dealership, along with cash and several other items.

In addition to two breaking and entering charges, Logan and an alleged accomplice were charged with the theft of $40,000 of personal property from the Harley shop and $30,000 of personal property from the tool shop. Logan was also charged with the theft of the motorcycle, valued at $17,600.
