Man gets 5 years in prison in burglary and attempted theft


A 23-year-old Campbell man who pleaded guilty to a home burglary and an attempted bank ATM theft, both in February 2012, has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Visiting Judge Thomas J. Pokorny imposed the sentence Monday on John Shea of Reed Avenue.

Shea had earlier pleaded guilty to motor vehicle theft, aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery with a firearm specification in a Feb. 21 incident at a Dumont Avenue, Campbell, residence; and to breaking and entering, safecracking and possessing criminal tools in a Feb. 27 incident at the Huntington National Bank, 102 E. Water St., Lowellville.

The criminal tools allegedly possessed on the day of the 3 a.m. attempted ATM theft included gloves, a crowbar and screwdrivers, according to the indictment.

The sentence is non-appealable because it was agreed to by the prosecution and defense and adopted by the judge.

Shea’s earliest eligibility for judicial release will be in 18 months.

There were no injuries in any of the crimes.
