Burglar sentenced to 7-20 years in prison

Nicholas Malone was found guilty for his role in a 2013 Schellsburg burglary.
BEDFORD – A 27-year-old Cumberland County man was sentenced Friday to 7-20 years in prison for his role in a Schellsburg burglary.

Nicholas Lee Malone was convicted of Burglary, Conspiracy, Criminal Trespass and Theft after a trial March 14th.

The charges stem from an incident on April 1, 2013 where Malone and his co-defendant/girlfriend Lajyn Checkeye broke into a Schellsburg home. Malone removed two televisions, a laptop computer, jewelry and several electronic devices from the home. He loaded the items into Checkeye’s vehicle and later traded the goods for heroin in the Harrisburg area.

After a State Police investigation and interview of Malone, he admitted to his involvement but opted for a jury trial.

Bedford County District Attorney Bill Higgins said Malone has a criminal history starting in 2001, including theft, drug and burglary offenses.

Malone was remanded to the Bedford County Jail to await transfer to SCI Camp Hill.
