Pierre pleads guilty to burglary
POLSON — A Polson man admitted to his involvement in the breaking into several storage units in Pablo and taking the contents.
Nickalie Chadwick Pierre, 35, entered a plea of guilty in Polson District Court June 22 to two counts of burglary.
According to court records, on April 23, 2020, the manager of the storage unit contacted law enforcement to report several units had been broken into. One tenant reported that everything from her unit was taken. Video surveillance from April 21, 2020, showed images of the burglary. An investigation led authorities to Pierre. On May 24, 2020, Pierre was questioned and admitted to breaking into the units. He told Judge Deborah “Kim” Christopher that he sold many of the items to pay for his drug habit. In a separate matter, Pierre pleaded guilty to criminal possession of dangerous drugs involving methamphetamine on Dec. 20, 2022, while the burglary case was pending.
A plea agreement calls for sentencing to be deferred for three years on each count of burglary, and two years on the drug possession charge for a total of eight years. A restitution amount has not yet been determined.
Judge Christopher set sentencing for Aug. 17. Pierre remains at liberty.
