A Washington, D.C. man was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to a charge that stemmed from a May home invasion in Glen Burnie, prosecutors said.
Craig Stevens Brooks, 50, posed as an employee for the energy company Pepco and gained access to a home in the 400 block of Bousch Place, the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office said in a statement. He tied up an adult in the home and then ransacked the house, according to the charging documents.
Brooks pleaded guilty to first-degree assault Tuesday.
He was arrested after a similar home invasion in July that took place in Prince George's County, prosecutors said. During that incident, which is still being adjudicated, a person was fatally shot.
