A Rothsville man was sent to state prison for stealing a video-game controller from an Ephrata Wal-Mart in his latest theft from a store.

Tristan Von Vo will serve 1 to 2 years for the Dec. 2, 2014, theft – at least his third conviction for retail theft.

Vo, 23, previously pleaded guilty to felony counts of retail theft and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor count of possessing an instrument of crime.

Ephrata police charged Vo with having a tool to defeat a security device on the controller’s packaging.

Lancaster County Judge David Ashworth, who recently ordered the sentence, made Vo eligible for boot camp.

Lancaster County Assistant District Attorney Kevin McGarry prosecuted the case.

Ephrata police Lt. Christopher McKim filed the charges.
