COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Gilbert Courts was sentenced to 9 months in jail Thursday for his role in thefts from several bathrooms.
He must also pay $8,975.99 in restitution to the victims.
Courts pleaded guilty to six counts of burglary at a hearing in November.
Courts was dubbed the “bathroom bandit” after he stole plumbing from several public restrooms in restaurants, stores and hospitals earlier this year.
According to police, Courts was stealing the bathroom fixtures for scrap to support a drug habit.
