Colby Thomas Admits To Mall Burglary
A Casper man is admitting he broke into a number of businesses at Eastridge Mall.
Thirty-seven year old Colby Thomas has pleaded guilty to one count of burglary and one count of wrongful taking or disposing of property.
Investigators say in mid-August, a number of businesses were broken into in the food court of Eastridge Mall and a number of items had been stolen after the mall had closed.
Officers obtained footage from a security camera inside the Subway store and identified Thomas as the burglar.
After searching his vehicle, police found other items related to a separate burglary at the Sunrise Shopping Center, as well as burglary tools used to pry open doors.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a three-to-five year prison sentence, which will be handed down at a later date.
