A Lancaster city man will serve up to 9 years in prison for burglaries last year at six area businesses, including a donut shop and bar.
Michael C. Haynick, 31, recently pleaded guilty in Lancaster County Court to felony counts of burglary and related charges for crimes between April and May 2016.
Lancaster County Judge David Ashworth ordered Haynick serve 4½ to 9 years in prison.
Assistant District Attorney Travis S. Anderson, lead prosecutor, told the judge Haynick has had many chances to reform his behavior, including a stint in the county’s Drug Court program. Anderson said Haynick needs to be incarcerated for society to be protected.
The judge acknowledged that Haynick has had chances to address his drug addiction issues.
As part of sentence, Haynick must pay over $9,000 in restitution.
Haynick targeted the following businesses in the spree:
- Villa Nova, 1310 Harrisburg Pike
- Dunkin Donuts, 1242 Lititz Pike
- Lancaster Tank and Car Wash, 798 Flory Mill Road
- Trago Mechanical, 5 West Wynwood Drive
- Willow Breeze Laundromat, 2914 Willow Street Pike
- Almanzar Tire, 1023 Ranck Mill Road
Police in Lancaster city, Manheim Township, and West Lampeter filed charges.
