LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man is back in jail just a month after being put on probation after serving three months in prison on burglary charges.

Angelina County Adult Probation Director Rodney Thompson said the department is requesting probation be revoked for Johnathan Christopher Clopp, 24, after he violated some conditions. Thompson said he was not allowed to release the exact details of the violations at this time.

Clopp was sentenced to prison for 10 years in September but granted shock probation in March.

Shock probation is a method used by putting convicts in prison and letting them out to probation in hopes that prison "shocks" them into steering right.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Angelina County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the 900 block of Kirkland Road on March 3, 2011, after the resident there said someone broke into the home by breaking a window on a locked door in the garage. She said numerous pieces of jewelry and a sterling silver set of place settings and servers were stolen.

On March 14, the complainant's daughter was arrested on an unrelated charge and provided a written statement, saying Clopp met the daughter at her residence and asked her if "she would be mad," according to the affidavit. The daughter asked why and Clopp showed her the set of settings and servers, the affidavit states.

The daughter told investigators she recognized the set as her parents' and told Clopp she was not mad at him because she was mad at her parents and would go with him to sell the settings and servers to a local business, according to the affidavit.

Clopp told her he had already sold the jewelry, and they went to the business and sold the set for $400, according to the affidavit.
