Charleston man sentenced for burglary in Williamson County

A Charleston man was sentenced to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty Monday to burglary.

According to a news release from Williamson County State’s Attorney Brandon Zanotti, officers responded to an activated security alarm on Oct. 7 at a business on West Enterprise Way in Marion.

An officer later found Tyler B. Wehr, 32, of Charleston, fleeing the scene. The news release said the investigation revealed that Wehr had broken into a doctor’s office on West Enterprise Way and was attempting to break into another business in the strip mall.

The release said Wehr has a prior burglary conviction in Coles County and will serve two years of mandatory supervised release following his release from prison.
