A judge has granted probation to a man charged with several business burglaries in Washington in 2011.
Nicholas G. Casteel, 27, was given suspended imposition sentences on felony burglary and stealing charges in break-ins April 2 and April 11, 2011, at the Shop Around the Corner on East Fifth Street and NOA Medical on Terry Lane, according to police reports.
Casteel was identified as a suspect based on fingerprints found at one of the burglary scenes. During questioning by a detective, he admitted to being involved in that break-in.
Judge Gael Wood also placed Casteel on five years’ supervised probation in the felony cases and ordered him to pay almost $5,000 in restitution and to serve 15 days shock time in the county jail beginning at 5 p.m. Jan. 20.
Casteel also was ordered to serve 200 hours of community service under the plea bargain reached in the case, according to online court records.
