A Walterboro man who wore an ankle bracelet to a residential burglary will spend time in prison.
Christian T. A. Chaplin, 25, of Walterboro, had been out on bond for an burglary in January of this year and was ordered to wear an electronic monitor on his ankle as a provision of his bond.
Chaplin was wearing the ankle monitor when he participated in a July 20 burglary — the monitor’s GPS placed him at a Wichman Street residence at the time of the burglary.
On July 21, a representative of Offenders Management Services, the company that installs and monitors the device for the court system, contacted the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office to report that Chaplin had cut off his ankle monitor. The move violated his bond.
Although the monitor had been cut off, the GPS continued to work, and the representative and deputies were able to track the monitor to where was discarded and retrieve it.
When Chaplin appeared in last week’s Colleton County General Sessions, he pled guilty to three counts of second-degree burglary stemming from two residential burglaries on Wichman Street and the Fourth Street burglary that put the bracelet on his ankle.
