Man charged after odd incident at city business
BY RYAN ROBINSON, Staff Writer
A Leola man was caught with his pants down -- literally -- in an incident at a city business, police said.
An alarm was triggered at 1:46 a.m. Sunday at Detail Services, 42 S. Prince St., city police Lt. Todd Umstead said.
Responding officers heard the alarm still sounding and saw a large front window of the business had been broken inward.
Inside, officers found Gary Almodovar, 23, of the 400 block of Brendon Drive, Leola, lying on an office floor on the first floor, Umstead said.
Almodovar was asleep, and his pants were down. He also was intoxicated, Umstead said.
Almodovar is not an employee of Detail Services and was not allowed to be there.
Police charged Almodovar with criminal trespass and criminal mischief before District Judge Cheryl Hartman.
He was committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of bail.
Almodovar has been behind bars before.
He pleaded guilty to arson, burglary and risking catastrophe after an incident April 19, 2009, court records show.
Almodovar broke into a West King Street apartment, set the building on fire and fled down a fire escape.
No one was seriously injured, but at least one other apartment unit in the building was occupied at the time, newspaper records show.
He was sentenced in April 2010 to up to 23 months in prison and 5 years of probation for that incident.
