A South Bend man has been sentenced to 30-years behind bars for a series of break-ins to South Bend homes last year.
On Thursday, a judge sentenced Patrick Fleming on six
felony counts of burglary.
In September 2006, the 22-year old Fleming was originally charged on 18 burglary counts.
He was charged after at least 26-homes were broken into, mostly in the Twyckenham Hills and Erskine manor neighborhoods.
According to police, a lone fingerprint first tied Fleming to the string of burglaries.
Fleming later admitted to climbing in windows and walking through unlocked doors of area homes.
