BLACKFOOT – One of the two men charged in the Pocatello and Shelley construction site burglary has reached a settlement with the Bingham County Prosecutor’s Office.

Oscar Orlando Herrera, 57, has pleaded guilty to a revised charge of evasion from possession, according to court documents. In return, the prosecutor would dismiss a theft charge.

Herrera and 21-year-old Jobson Enoch García Bacca were arrested in Pocatello on the morning of January 15, when officers found them driving a van loaded with equipment worth about $20,000, which was reported stolen. Charges were filed against both men in connection with a construction site burglary in Shelley while they were being held in Bannock County.

Herrera was charged with felony theft and robbery for the Shelley crimes.

After a plea agreement was reached in Bannock County, both men were ordered to serve probation and released from prison to appear in court in Bingham County.

Herrera attended court and reached a plea deal. As part of the deal, the prosecutor will recommend probation to run alongside the probation period obtained in Bannock County. The prosecutor has also agreed to recommend a sentence of at least 10 years in prison.

He is to be sentenced by District Judge Darren Simpson on September 9.

García Baca was a no-show on the court. A warrant for his arrest was issued on June 29.
