Stalling and an accomplice were walking on Front Street and broke into a vehicle, stealing numerous items, including baby items and coins. Stalling entered a plea of No Contest, and was found guilty. He was ordered to pay a fine and costs, pay restitution to the victim, and given 180 days in the regional jail, of which 170 were suspended. Please be vigilant and report anything suspicious to authorities.
