A Middletown man will be spending the next four years in prison after he admitted to committing a slew of burglaries dating back to January 2013.

John G. Killian, 36, was sentenced May 9 by Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels to four years in state prison for committing nine commercial burglaries and one vehicle burglary in Point Pleasant Borough between early January and mid May 2013.

Killian pleaded guilty to the charges in March; he had been arrested June 14, 2013.

According to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office, Killian's criminal acts spanned over five months and included guilty pleas to nine commercial burglaries and one motor vehicle burglary. The establishments burglarized included O’Brien’s Florist, Touch of Class Hair Salon, Dairy Queen and various chiropractic and medical offices in the the borough. 

The items stolen included cash, checks, lidocaine bottles, hypodermic needles, amongst other things, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor's office.

Killian has been incarcerated since the time of his arrest, Della Fave said. The case was handled by Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor Ehsan F. Chowdhry, who sought a five year prison term along with full restitution and no victim contact.

I can't believe that employers aren't tripping over themselves to hire this guy. What a catch ladies! Nothing like a big green star cartoon on your neck to improve your chances for success in life.

He will be out in less than a year. He's already been in one year. His priors include eluding police in a stolen car various drug arrests and various break ins for years now. A career criminal and this is what he gets. My wife and I lost our insurance after we put in a claim for Dairy Queen. State Farm dropped us because we put in two claims. One for super storm Sandy, and less than a year later one for Mr. Killian.

Maybe your insurance problems stem from your litigious approach to dealing with the town? You deserve what you get, or in this case, can't get! Too bad the police had to assist you. Maybe they'll roll up the next time you park illegally at the supermarket.

Interesting. Both Alex and my reply to RJS were removed. Why? Did we offend someone with the truth? The Patch had gone way downhill, and that's an accomplishment for something that started in the valley.

For the record, Dairy Queen challenged me to a fight, which I guess is his M.O. The rest was nonsense. State Farm owes you nothing. Perhaps you should consider living by their motto.
