Man gets 1-5 years for stealing $600 from former employer

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lancaster County man will spend up to five years in state prison for stealing from a former employer who had tried to rehabilitate him from a drug addiction.

Christopher T. Myers, formerly of East Earl, was ordered to serve 1-5 years for breaking into Shady Maple’s stand at Lancaster Central Market and taking $600, according to the district attorney’s office.

Shady Maple gave Myers a job driving truck and a fully-furnished apartment after he graduated from a drug rehab program operated by the business’s owners, but he eventually relapsed and was fired.

Two weeks later, authorities said Myers used a manager’s passcode to access an employees-only area of the stand where he was videotaped as he took the money and fled.

He pleaded guilty in October to felony burglary and misdemeanor theft.
