Corner Brook man gets house arrest, probation for trio of business break-ins

A Corner Brook man who admitted to participating in break ins at three downtown businesses last summer has been given six months of house arrest for the crimes.

Tyler Stedman Baldwin, 27, was also given 12 months of probation for stealing electronic items from a car last spring.

Baldwin, who was sentenced in provincial court Tuesday afternoon, had previously entered guilty pleas to breaking into the Royal Canadian Legion, Metal Specialty Ltd. and Brook Enterprises on June 18.

The theft from the vehicle took place in May.

Six other charges against Baldwin, including trespassing at night and possessing stolen property, were withdrawn by Crown attorney Adam Sparkes.

The six-month conditional sentence and the 12 months of probation endorsed by Judge Kymil Howe were suggested by the Crown and agreed to by defence counsel Julia Smart.

Baldwin was one of four people, including two youth who cannot be named, arrested in relation to the three break and entries in June. The other adult co-accused, 22-year-old Patrick George Christopher Sheppard, is back in court Dec. 15.
