David Scroggins Sentenced For Second Burglary
A convicted Natrona County burglar will be spending more time behind bars, after admitting he committed the same offense at a separate business.
David Scroggins was sentenced to four-to-six years in prison, after he 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.
Scroggins is currently serving a three-to-five sentence, for burglarizing the Perkins restaurant in Casper, where he was working as a janitor at the time, back in October 2014.
The new sentence will run at the same time as the other one.
He had been released from federal prison, not long before the burglary cases took place.
