Second Man Pleads Guilty in String of Apartment Burglaries
A Centre Hall man pleads guilty to a string of burglaries in the State College area.
Those burglaries targeted small apartment complexes with many occurring at times when Penn State students were away on holiday breaks.
Prosecutors say Aaron Klinger, 24, pleaded guilty to a number of charges including burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property as well drug charges.
Authorities say Klinger and a co-defendant were responsible for 26 burglaries that took place between March 2012 and January 2014. They stole cash and electronics including televisions, computers and computer games.
Reichlin and Klinger were arrested in February. At the time, invesigators said the crimes appeared to be an effort to fund their addiction to heroin.
It was Reichlin's mother who called police after discovering two syringes and 20 small baggies of heroin in his closet.
In June, Reichlin, 39, of State College was sentenced to eight to 20 years in state prison for 28 counts of burglary and one drug offense.
Klinger will be sentenced on August 26, 2014.
