Burglar risks 21-year sentence if he fails in drug treatment

A Cambria man who stole a cash register from a nursery and two vehicles from a supermarket parking lot pleaded guilty to all three crimes this week.

Saith J. Shine, 37, of Cambria-Lewiston Townline Road, faces a maximum of 21 years in state prison if he fails to beat his heroin addiction in the court-supervised treatment program to which he was assigned by County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.

Shine admitted to third-degree burglary for stealing the cash register Sept. 20 from Faery's Nursery in Cambria, and two counts of third-degree grand larceny for stealing vehicles Nov. 4 and 9 from the Tops Market in Sanborn. Assistant District Attorney Joel M. Grundy said the cash register was found in Shine's home when it was searched after his arrest for the vehicle thefts.
