Man sentenced for role in string of 5 Concord burglaries last fall
CONCORD - 32-year-old Ian Berry was sentenced Thursday for his role in several Concord area burglaries that occurred last fall.
According to court documents, Berry and another man, Abraham Sanborn, of Concord were charged with robbing five different homes in the Penacook area of Concord.
Susan Brewer, woke up one morning last fall to what she thought was mice rummaging in her kitchen.
It turns out, Berry and Sanborn had entered her home through a small kitchen window, according to police.
Brewer said she started screaming and scared the two men away - but not before they grabbed a few items from her home.
Brewer's belongings have been stored as evidence since the break-in happened in case they went to trial.
"I won't have closure until I get my stuff back," Brewer said.
Another victim, Winston McCarty, said he doesn't hold a grudge and feels bad for the man who stole from his home.
"He has an opportunity to better himself and I hope that he does," McCarty said.
Police said they were able to link Barry and Sanborn to the crimes through fingerprints.
The maximum sentence of the five felony burglary charges against Berry is 75 years in state prison, the minimum sentence is 27 years.
