WORTHINGTON — A Worthington man will serve a two-year prison term for his relation to a string of recent burglaries across multiple counties and states.

Jason W. Meyer, 22, was convicted Monday of three felony charges related to a string of burglaries across northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota that resulted in the theft of more than $10,000 in stolen property, including cash, two guns and ammunition and a Yamaha ATV.

The prison terms will be served concurrently, the longest being 24 months. He was awarded 78 days jail credit.

Meyer was ordered to pay $10,183.75 restitution jointly with the other co-defendants, Coal Mayer, 20, and Sebastian Baker, 23, both of Round Lake.

The trio, along with Naomi Kramer, 20, of Round Lake, were all recently charged with third-degree burglary in Cottonwood County related to a Sept. 13 burglary of Cemstone in Windom, in which they’re alleged to have taken a money bag and 12-pack soda cans. The value of the missing items is estimated to be $150.
