ND man sentenced to 60 days for breaking into home

BISMARCK — A judge says a North Dakota man accused of breaking into a home and stealing a cell phone that was used to track him down must serve 60 days in jail.

Twenty-two-year-old Pedro Morales Jr., of Medina, pleaded guilty to felony burglary. Authorities say he broke into a Bismarck home in the early morning hours of Jan. 28.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Zjoe6z) that Morales was sentenced to one year in jail, with all but 60 days suspended.

Morales allegedly stole numerous items from the home, including several cell phones. Police say GPS tracking on one of the phones led an officer to the suspect.

A defense attorney says two other people were with Morales at the time, but the police report does not mention other suspects.
