Judge calls man 'public enemy' for leading police on high speed

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Newburg, Pa., teenager was sentenced to serve up to 23 months in Franklin County Prison for his role in two burglaries at a local supermarket.

Nicholas Weist, 18, was charged with the April 1 and July 28 burglaries of Save-A-Lot grocery store on Lincoln Way East in Chambersburg.

Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Judge John Walker sentenced Weist to from nine to 23 months, and Weist will receive credit for time he has served at the jail since Aug. 14.

Walker also ordered Weist to seven years of probation and to make nearly $10,000 in restitution to the store.

Weist and several others were arrested both times for breaking into the store.

"The bad part is after you got caught the first time you went back and did it again," Walker said. He warned Weist, "If you ever go back and break into Save-A-Lot again, I'm going to send you away and when you get out you'll be eligible for Social Security."

Weist told Walker he spent his share of the money on jewelry and tattoos.
