BALTIMORE — A Halethorpe man who prosecutors say led a group that burglarized dozens of businesses in four states has been sentenced to more than 5 years in prison.
Fifty-four-year-old Carl Paschall Sr. was also ordered to forfeit $200,000 at sentencing Friday in federal court in Baltimore.
According to his guilty plea, Paschall and others, including his son, committed commercial burglaries in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Prosecutors say the burglars cut power lines and telephone lines before using vise grips, sledgehammers and blow torches to break into businesses. They stole cash, money, jewelry, cigarettes, lottery tickets and prescription drugs.
Thirty-two-year-old Carl Paschall Jr. of Baltimore pleaded guilty in the burglaries, and was sentenced to more than 5 years in prison.
