Aaron Atchison, 19, was sentenced to one year of county probation after being charged in two cases with theft and fleeing from police.
He was also ordered to pay court costs, a $50 fine and $100 in restitution, and complete any counseling recommended by the Butler County Adult Probation Office, as well as 20 hours of community service.
Atchison pleaded guilty April 3 to misdemeanor flight to avoid prosecution and two counts of theft from a motor vehicle.
Atchison was initially charged with misdemeanor flight, theft, conspiracy to commit theft, loitering and prowling at night and corruption of minors after an incident on July 17; and theft from a motor vehicle after an incident on July 22. The remaining charges were dismissed as part of the plea.
Butler police charged Atchison after they say he fled from officers after a report of two young males breaking into vehicles July 17 in the area of First Street.
Atchison and a 15-year-old boy were identified by police.
The video showed the pair checking the doors on several vehicles parked on the side of the street before they entered the victim’s unlocked SUV and rummaged through it for about a minute, police said.
