LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A city man who stole a $4.49 bottle of Advil from a Lancaster Township store – his 12th conviction for retail theft – will serve time in prison.

David M. Springer was ordered Tuesday to serve four months at Lancaster County Prison, with eligibility for work release. He’ll also serve five months on house arrest, 14 months of parole, and three years of probation, according to District Attorney Craig Stedman’s office.

Authorities said Springer paid for other items but stashed the bottle of pain relievers in his pocket.

At sentencing, Judge Jeffery Wright noted that while the theft was of low value, Springer is a threat to society because he continues to steal from stores.
