LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Judge Gerald Goodwin sentenced an 18-year-old Lufkin man to five years of probation for his part in stealing a ring valued at $1,800 from a parked car Friday morning.

Jonah Paul Kellum was sentenced in the 159th Judicial District Court. Kellum pleaded guilty to felony theft in late 2012. His brother, Samuel David Kellum, 25, pleaded guilty to felony theft in November.

In July, Samuel and Jonah Kellum stole a ring valued at $1,800 from an unlocked vehicle.

However, because the owner knew they may be coming in to his store, he called police when they arrived.

The name of the jewelry store and additional details on the case were withheld to protect the investigation.

The day before they were arrested and charged with felony theft between $1,500 and $20,000, Samuel and Paul Kellum were arrested for public intoxication after they were found intoxicated in the parking lot of a gas station.
