LUDINGTON — A 46-year-old Hart man faces serving nine months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term after pleading guilty Tuesday, Jan. 2, in 51st Circuit Court to breaking and entering with intent.

Roy James Alltop, of 3745 132nd Ave., is charged with the same offense in Oceana County’s 27th Circuit Court for allegedly breaking into a storage building. His Mason County case will run concurrently to his Oceana County case as well as a 79th District Court case, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Alltop testified that he broke into an unlocked pole barn on Eden Lake Road in Eden Township and stole “a 4-inch grinder and little pack of tools.”

In district court, Alltop is charged with second-offense operating while intoxicated following a crash that injured his passenger, Blair Rochelle Collins, 27, of Hart. Collins was trapped inside the vehicle and suffered fractured legs and ankles.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 27 at 1:30 p.m.
