CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Shippensburg, Pa., teenager charged in connection with more than a dozen burglaries last year in Franklin County entered a plea agreement Monday in county court.
Scott Alan Dehart, 18, of 112 E. Orange St., pleaded guilty to four second-degree felony burglary charges and was scheduled for sentencing on Wednesday, April 5, according to his attorney, David Yoder.
In exchange for the plea, 10 other burglary charges will be dismissed, along with 15 counts of criminal conspiracy, nine counts of theft and two counts each of attempted burglary and receiving stolen property, Yoder said.
Between May and August, three men took part in a series of commercial burglaries in the Shippensburg and Chambersburg areas, police said in court records. Dehart and Dennis O'Donnell, 19, of Shippensburg, were taken into custody by Chambersburg and Pennsylvania State Police leaving the Pizza Hut at 811 Wayne Ave., at 2:34 a.m., police alleged.
