LANCASTER, Pa.– A Lancaster County jury convicted a man of felony burglary after he broke into a garage last year and stole various tools, including a snow blower and a chainsaw.

Kevin Conover, 53, of Berks County, will be sentenced in a few months after a background check is completed.

He was convicted on December 1 of felony burglary and misdemeanor theft.

On October 6, 2015, Conover broke into a garage on Division Highway in East Earl Township and stole various power tools and other objects.

Mid-theft, the victims arrived at the garage causing Conover to flee while leaving his truck at the scene. The truck was then traced to Conover, who the victims were able to identify as the man who had stolen from their garage.
