Jacob Moser, 24, of North Platte, was convicted of two burglaries Monday in Lincoln County District Court. Moser pled no contest to both charges to take advantage of a plea offer from the Lincoln County Attorney’s Office.
In the deal, Moser was convicted of burglary of Kohler Trailer Sales as well as a home south of Lake Maloney on Kaneb Road, while charges of burglarizing Ideal Linen and possession of meth were dropped.
Moser was arrested along with Cody Jolliffe in the May 22 theft of a safe containing a large amount of cash and other items, including the security cameras, from Kohler Trailer Sales and Service in North Platte.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said the burglary occurred sometime during the night or early morning, while the business was closed.
Jolliffe and Moser were nabbed June 1 when they were stopped near North Platte by a Nebraska state trooper for driving a car with a fictitious license plate.
Both men were already facing charges for the Ideal Linen burglary and the home on Kaneb Road, both of which involved safes and large amounts of cash, but were out of jail on bonds.
Moser posted $2,500 bond on March 22 was released from jail, only to be arrested again a few days after after Kohler’s was burglarized.
Both men are now in the county jail. Moser is held on a $50,000 bond for burglary, and Jolliffe has two separate $25,000 bonds.
Chief Deputy Lincoln County Attorney Tanya Roberts-Connick said pending county court charges against Moser might be dropped too, but she did not specify.
Lincoln County District Judge Donald Rowlands set sentencing for Sept. 9.
Jolliffe, 29, also appeared in district court Monday but his case was continued at the request of defense attorney Pat Hays. Jolliffe is scheduled to return to district court to plead to the charges on Aug. 8.
Jolliffe was accused Thursday of other crimes -- another burglary as well as meth possession.
Jolliffe allegedly broke into Matt Bobo's home at 513 No. Sycamore on May 15. Bobo is in jail, charged with possessing drugs and an illegal weapon.
On Thursday, Jolliffe was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, which investigators said occurred back on March 18.
