BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) — A Sykesville man who pleaded guilty to burglary charges was recently sentenced to serve time behind bars.

According to court documents, 28-year-old James Edward Michaud, of Sykesville, pleaded guilty December 6 to one count of burglary, a second-degree felony.

President Judge John Foradora sentenced Michaud to a minimum of six months to a maximum of 23 months and 29 days in the Jefferson County Jail.

He received three years and one day of probation that will be served upon the completion of his jail sentence. He was ordered to refrain from the use of alcoholic beverages and from entering any establishments whose primary business is the sale of alcohol. In addition, he was ordered to refrain from frequenting unlawful or disreputable places or consorting with disreputable persons.

Other charges were dismissed, including criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking and criminal mischief.

Case details:

At 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, DuBois-based State Police were called to Wayne Road Storage in Winslow Township for a burglary in progress.

According to police, it was reported by the victim – a Reynoldsville man – that a white male in his 20s was in his storage unit. The victim said his lock had been cut off and another lock put on the unit.

Police say that James Michaud removed items from the victim’s unit, No. 10, and placed them in unit No. 9, one rented by Michaud’s family.

Several items, including a receipt with the victim’s name on it, were recovered from unit No. 9, according to police.

Sykesville Woman Sentenced for Hindering Apprehension of Michaud

Felicity Lucille Fye, 19, of Sykesville, was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program January 17 in relation to her involvement in the case.

State Police said Fye lied to law enforcement officials about the whereabouts of Michaud when they first interviewed her July 20. She said that she had not seen Michaud since the day before. At 9:30 p.m., police returned to where Fye lived with her mother on Grant Street. Fye said she did not know where Michaud was.

Police then received permission to search the residence, and they found Michaud hiding in the bathroom and arrested him.

Fye will be on ARD for two years.
