LARNED – Thomas L. Robison, 21 of Larned, Kansas, appeared in custody before Pawnee County District Judge Bruce Gatterman Thursday afternoon for a probation revocation hearing.

According to Pawnee County Attorney Douglas McNett, Robison was arrested on July 13, 2020, on a 19-count criminal complaint: nine counts of felony forgery, nine counts of theft by deception and one count of attempted misdemeanor theft. The charges stem from an allegation that Robison forged stolen checks to purchase lottery tickets from Pawnee County businesses in late May 2020.  He was on felony probation at the time of the alleged new crimes.

At the revocation hearing, Robison stipulated to violating the terms of probation by failing to report, using controlled substances, and obtaining new felony charges. Following the stipulation, Judge Gatterman revoked the defendant’s probation and remanded him to the custody of the Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) to serve the remainder of his underlying sentences.

Robison was convicted in 2017 of two separate cases of burglary of a motor vehicle and in 2019 of burglary of the Subway and State Theater in Larned.  All sentences run consecutively for a total underlying sentence of 38 months with KDOC.
