A man who broke in to a Sylvan Lake condo building and rummaged through several vehicles will spend the next four months in prison.
Chance Tosh Muranaka, 42, of Sylvan Lake, pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from the Dec. 13, 2015 incident. On Wednesday, in Red Deer provincial court Muranaka pleaded guilty to three counts of theft under $5,000, break and enter not a dwelling house and failing to comply with release conditions. He was sentenced to 180 days in prison and with 50 days worth of in-custody credit. Muranaka has 130 days left to serve on his sentence.
Sylvan Lake RCMP said they were called to the Fairway Estates Condominium that day for a reported break and enter. Their investigation determined two suspects broke into the parkade and rummaged through unlocked vehicles stealing items. The suspects also broke into storage lockers. The two suspects were caught on video as they spent more than an hour in the parkade. Police identified a vehicle from the incident, which led them to arrest Muranaka.
