A man with a history of burglary and theft dating back 13 years to when he was a teenager is indicted in another burglary.

According to Clay County Circuit Court records, 31-year-old Charlie Rimp Jones was arrested Monday on a burglary indictment handed down last month by the Clay County Grand Jury.

He is accused of the Aug. 23, 2017 burglary of property owned by Jason Bryan.

He has waived arraignment, according to court records, but no bond has been set.
His criminal history dates back to 2004 when he was charged with burglary of a business. In January 2005, he was sentenced to three years in prison and four years post-release supervision.

Two years later in April 2007, he was sentenced to three years for malicious mischief.
He completed those sentences but in 2013 and 2014, he was arrested again in connection separate burglary and grand larceny cases.
Finally, on Oct. 13, 2015, he pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and the grand larceny and burglary charges were retired.

He was sentenced to two years as a habitual offender.
According to court records, he said he was under the influence of cocaine and methamphetamine when he committed the crimes but that he'd been clean for the months he'd been in jail.
 He was released from prison on June 6, 2016, according to court records
