LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man who violated terms of his probation after being out of jail for just a month will continue his probation after he gets out of a drug rehabilitation program.

Johnathan Christopher Clopp, 24, pleaded true to an accusation that he violated his probation. Judge Gerald Goodwin ordered Clopp to an intersanctioned facility, which is a state-run substance abuse facility, for 90 days.

Clopp must remain in the Angelina County Jail until he is accepted into a facility.

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.

Clopp was arrested in April after violating terms of his probation.
