Burglary spree earns $197k restitution

Four young men who burglarized homes in Spokane County last year have been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 in restitution.

George A. Denison, 21; Patrick Hayes Wellman, 20; Joseph S. Denison and Anthony Fuerte are to split the $197,200 imposed in Superior Court after pleading guilty to residential burglary, theft and gun charges.

The burglary spree occurred between between April and September, including a burglary on Sept. 7 in the 32000 block of North Rimrose Drive in which seven firearms, 85 ounces of gold coins and 1,500 ounces of silver was stolen.

George Denison was sentenced to 39 months in prison recently; Wellman, who already is headed to federal prison for drug and gun convictions, was sentenced to 43 months. Fuerte was given an alternative drug offender sentencing program. Joseph Denison is awaiting trial but was listed in court documents as being required to pay the restitution.
