A Mishawaka man was sentenced to more than four years in prison after he broke into a police officer’s home.

According to court documents, Zachary Adams, 34, stole multiple items from the officer’s home, including a 9mm handgun.

Five days later, Adams stole a car and drove to a South Bend business where he tried to commit fraud using a false, or stolen, Florida driver’s license.

When officers responded to the incident, Adams fought them; however, officers were able to subdue him. Police then found the stolen handgun in a shoulder holster under Adams’ shirt.

Adams was sentenced Tuesday to 51 months in prison followed by two years of supervised release.

He had been convicted of four felonies and five misdemeanors in the past.
