October 17, 2008

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Waynesboro, Pa., man convicted of burglarizing several homes on Clayton Avenue last year was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to spend three to 10 years in state prison.

Steven Lynn Calimer Jr., 28, of 62 Locust St., pleaded guilty in August to three counts of burglary, all of the offenses having occurred Sept. 18, 2007. Several homeowners called the Waynesboro Police Department that day to report that their houses had been broken into through smashed windows, according to court records.

Another homeowner reported finding a man on his back porch. When asked what he was doing there, Calimer said he was looking for another man and walked away. The homeowner told police Calimer hid something in a pine tree to the rear of the property.

An officer spotted a shirtless man walking down an alley behind Clayton Avenue, his thumb bleeding and under the influence of drugs, police said. Calimer was taken into custody and admitted to the burglaries, police said.
