Try 3 months for $3

EASTON, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to what his attorney called a "crime of stupidity": burglarizing a neighbor's home by cutting a hole in the wall between his basement and the neighbor's.

Public defender Anthony Rybak told a Northampton County judge he didn't see how anyone could think he'd get away with such a crime.

The (Allentown) Morning Call  says that's why 22-year-old Sammy Paul Buskirk pleaded guilty Thursday to burglary, telling the judge he's a heroin addict.

Buskirk acknowledged sawing through his wall on Dec. 4 to create a hole to get into the neighbor's home where he stole $200 worth of quarters.
