CLEARFIELD – A Clearfield man charged with burglary pleaded guilty Monday during colloquy court.
Mason R. Warren, 19, was sentenced by Judge Paul E. Cherry to six months to two years less one day in the county jail along with three years consecutive probation for conspiracy/burglary, according to a court employee.
An investigation began after police were given a tip that Warren, Clayton Thomas Brown, 19, of Woodland and Alexander Robert Frantz, 19, also of Clearfield, were going to enter a residence on Woodland Road in Clearfield Borough while the occupants were out of state and steal firearms in June of 2020, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
Officers began surveillance of the residence where they noted a motion sensor light come on showing three males near the home. They went to the front of the building and then to the side.
After this, officers saw a light go on inside the residence. Next, the rear door was opened from inside.
Two of the men walked away then came back. As officers closed in on the residence, Frantz came out of the home. He turned and went back in after being told to show his hands.
Frantz exited through an open window, which is how he had made entry. He and the others were taken into custody.
In July, Brown pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced by Cherry to serve six months to one year in jail plus two years consecutive probation.
Frantz pleaded guilty in April to burglary and resisting arrest. Cherry sentenced him to six months to one year in jail with two years consecutive probation.
