Not guilty plea in Quinlan ISD burglary

GREENVILLE — One of two men, indicted for allegedly breaking into a Quinlan Independent School District building last fall and stealing a car, has pleaded not guilty.

Chance Dakota Jeffcoat already had trial set next month in connection with a burglary of a residence one year earlier.

Jeffcoat, 22, and Thomas Jake Payne, 22, each received one indictment last month for burglary of a building and one indictment for unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Jeffcoat and Payne, both of Quinlan, were alleged in the indictments to have broken into a Quinlan ISD building on Sept. 29, 2012 and to have stolen a 2012 Ford Fusion; as well as tools, keys, a radiator, copper and other items.

Payne is scheduled for arraignment on the indictments on March 4.

Jeffcoat entered the not guilty pleas during an arraignment hearing Monday in the 196th District Court. Judge Steve Tittle accepted the pleas and scheduled a tentative trial date on both charges for March 11.

Jeffcoat was already facing trial on that date in connection with a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft.

Jeffcoat was alleged in the indictment of breaking into a home on Sept. 17, 2011. He has pleaded not guilty.
