Man pleads guilty to school break-in
A Westminster man is to be sentenced Oct. 20 after pleading guilty to a statement of facts about a break-in at Francis Scott Key High School.
Patrick Allen Globus, 20, of Pennsylvania Avenue, asked through his lawyer for probation before judgment, to avoid a conviction that would cause him to be discharged from the U.S. Army National Guard.
Judge Francis M. Arnold postponed his decision until a presentence investigation is completed.
"I need to know a little more about you," he said. "But there won't be any probation before judgment, so don't bank on that."
Carroll Assistant State's Attorney Kathi Hill read a statement of facts that said about $1,800 in cash and checks, as well as other items, were stolen from the Uniontown school. Mr. Globus was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony.
An anonymous caller to state police and the school led police to Mr. Globus, she said.
