Sentencing In Connection To A Burglary

A Denton man received his sentencing in connection to a burglary in Vernon.

Edgar Ridge was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Wednesday and the 46th Judicial District Court of Wilbarger County.  The 43-year-old was convicted of Burglary of a Habitation that happened in February 2013.

Police said a woman and her children returned to their home and noticed a window was broken.  When they entered the house the woman noticed several items missing.

Police arrived at the scene shortly after.  Detectives found fingerprints and were able to match them to Ridge.

His punishment was enhanced because of prior burglary convictions.
