A Fridley man who had been facing five felony charges for a Ramsey burglary has pleaded guilty to one charge and the others were dismissed.
Randal Anthony Daher, 41, was found guilty of theft by take/use/transfer of movable property without consent and sentenced May 14 in Anoka County District Court to 27 months in prison. He was given credit for 121 days served.
Daher will be paying restitution of $650 from his prison wages.
According to the complaint, the Ramsey Police Department received a call about two suspicious men in the locked parking garage of Rivers Bend Apartments, 13929 St. Francis Blvd., Jan. 13.
The men, later identified as Travis Richard Otto, 34, and Daher, were allegedly looking into parked vehicles and seen leaving the garage carrying a large bag.
When officers arrived, they saw a Pontiac Bonneville speeding out of the parking lot.
As they followed, they saw items, including compact discs, a compact disc player, black hats, gloves and hoodies, in the road that appeared to have been freshly thrown there, according to the complaint.
The owners of the two vehicles broken into reported missing compact discs, a diaper bag and a compact disc player.
When officers stopped the Pontiac, Daher was identified as the driver and Otto the passenger.
Otto, also of Fridley, is scheduled for a jury trial Sept. 9 for third-degree burglary, theft by take/use/transfer of movable property without consent and possession of burglary or theft tools, all felonies.
