Hole in the Wall burglar pleads

Posted: Updated:

As his trial was underway, 27-year-old Clifford Thomas stopped the proceedings with a guilty plea.

He pled guilty to seven counts of burglary, admitting that between August and October of 2007, he used a sledge hammer to break the walls of seven stores in the Albany area.

He and an accomplice, Richard Taylor, then stole merchandise from the stores. Taylor has already been convicted, and is serving a five-year sentence.

Thomas, who will be sentenced later, could receive a 20-year sentence.
