David Scroggins Admits To Second Burglary
A convicted Natrona County burglar has admitted to committing the same offense at a separate business.
David Scroggins has pleaded guilty to one charge of burglary.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say back in October 2014, a report came in regarding a burglary that had occurred on the 800 block of East Second Street.
About $400 was taken from a cash drawer.
Upon reviewing security camera video, officers noticed that the suspect had a number of tattoos on his arms, and later found out Scroggins had been arrested in an unrelated burglary case.
The tattoos on Scroggins were similar to the ones on the man in the video, and detectives were later able to conclude, that they had the man they were looking for.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a four-to-six year prison sentence and that sentence will run at the time, with a three-to-five sentence that he's currently serving, for burglarizing the Perkins restaurant in Casper, where he was working as a janitor at the time, back in October 2014.
Scroggins will be sentenced in the hair salon burglary case, at a later date.
He had been released from federal prison, not long before the burglary cases took place.
