A Pekin teenager, one of two people picked up following a string of car burglaries in Pekin, was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to one count of burglary. 18 year old Gabriel Thompson was given credit for time already served in jail and put on 30 months probation. Thompson was arrested in the 1200 block of Florence last April, one day after Pekin Police warned residents to be diligent about locking their cars. Meantime, a second teen, Gage King of Peoria, has already been sentenced to five and a half years in prison for the same crime.
