State prison ordered for multi-county burglar

One of three Tioga County men arrested in 2008 for a burglary jag that spanned six Pennsylvania counties was sentenced to state prison time in Lycoming County Court on Thursday.

Scott D. Fisher, of Wellsboro, was sentenced to three to six years in state prison for two counts each of conspiracy to commit burglary and theft.

Fisher, his son, and an accomplice robbed the barns and farmhouses of three property owners in Brown Township on July 24 and 25, 2008.

The burglaries were a small part of the trio’s spree. They burglarized scores of properties in Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Potter and Tioga counties during the summer of 2008, including a number of hunting camps.

Fisher was found guilty on 76 counts in Cameron County this past July.

His sentence pertaining to the Lycoming County burglaries will run concurrently to other sentences. He has been incarcerated in SCI-Camp Hill since Oct. 12, 2012, and will serve a minimum of 17 years in state prison.
