June 06, 1993|By Staff report

A former Baltimore County man will spend up to three years in jail for stealing nearly $80,000 from the offices of Baugher's Enterprises last summer.

In an agreement with prosecutors, Ryan Lamont Magruder, 24, formerly of Richmar Court in Reisterstown, pleaded guilty to felony theft Wednesday in exchange for the state dismissing nine other charges stemming from the robberies.

Circuit Court Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. convicted Magruder based on an agreed statement of facts and sentenced him to five years in prison, then suspended two years.

According to court records, Magruder went with two others, Tia Gibbons, 21, and Michael Cartwright, 20, both former Baugher's employees, to Baugher's Enterprises in late June and late August and stole a total of $79,721.21 in cash and checks from the business office.

In addition to the jail time, Magruder was ordered to pay a portion of $20,000 restitution to Baugher's Enterprises.

The judge also ordered that Magruder's Saab, purchased with some of the stolen money, be turned over to state police.
