Smethport Burglar Pleads Guilty

The last man to be charged in connection to a McKean County burglary ring has pleaded guilty.

20-year-old Austin Tankersley of East Smethport, using an assumed name, sold a four-wheeler to Parts-R-Us in Limestone. The owner then saw the four-wheeler online and learned that it had been stolen. He searched online for the phone number Tankersley game him, got his real name and contacted police.

He also pleaded guilty to running from Bradford police back in April after telling them not to ruin his day. To his credit, he did say “please,” according to court papers.

Tankersley is scheduled for sentencing on July 3.
