A Superior man will spend a year in jail for a string of residential burglaries.
Joseph Bluege Greene, 23, pleaded guilty to two counts felony burglary in Douglas County Circuit Court last week. Three additional counts of felony burglary, one count felony attempted burglary and misdemeanor theft and criminal damage to property charges were dismissed but read in for sentencing.
Greene was sentenced to three years of probation, one year in jail and ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and follow any recommendations. He’s also prohibited from having any contact with the victims. Restitution has yet to be determined. He was granted Huber work release.
According to the criminal complaint, Greene broke into a number of dwellings and cars in downtown Superior during August and September 2011. One of the residences was broken into twice. Greene stole cash and a number of items, including a snow blower, digital camera, TV, guitars, a Wii game system, GPS unit, tools and more.
Greene was identified as the suspect after items he pawned at various shops in Duluth were matched to items stolen in open burglary cases in Superior.
