AKRON, Ohio - An Akron man will spend nine years in prison for victimizing the elderly.
Michael Rardon, 41, was sentenced by Judge Tammy O'Brien Thursday.
Rardon burglarized four elderly women ranging in age from 79 to 94 who live in the Ellet neighborhood of Akron.
In one case, Rardon broke into a woman's home while she was doing yard work, according to the Summit County Prosecutor's Office.
They said in the other three instances, Rardon got into the women's homes by offering to perform yard work for them and then stole credit cards, purses and wallets.
On Oct. 17, Rardon pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary, theft and forgery.
