Jesse Pangus Sentenced For Trying To Break Into Casper Re-Entry Center Office
A former resident of the Casper Re-Entry Center is heading back to prison after admitting he tried to help steal official documents.
Twenty-four year old Jesse Pangus was sentenced to 19-to-50 months in prison, after he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit burglary.
Investigators with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office say in July 2014, a case manager noticed that something wasn't right in their office, because ceiling tile residue was discovered on a desk and chair and paperwork on the desk was disorganized.
Upon playing back the security camera footage, it was discovered that at one point, 26-year old James Stacy had exited the locked office with some papers, but didn't enter the office in the same way that he came out.
When interviewed, he admitted he entered the office through the ceiling area, which he was able to access elsewhere, outside of the view of security cameras.
The paperwork that he stole was for a friend who had a positive urine test.
Investigators later determined that initially, the plan was the break into the office, and Pangus attempted to pick the lock, while others blocked the view of a security camera.
When that didn't work, they went to Plan B.
Meanwhile, Stacy pleaded guilty to his role in the case, and has already been sentenced.
