A Finksburg man convicted of attempted armed robbery, burglary and theft in unrelated incidents must pay $26,000 in restitution or risk spending 33 years in prison, court records show.
Michael P. Manner, 32, received suspended sentences yesterday from Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. and was placed on five years' probation. He has paid about $6,000 and must pay the balance before the probation term ends, court records show.
Manner was living in Westminster on Sept. 18, 1998, when he broke into a home on Old Washington Road and stole $23,600, court records show. Burns imposed a 15-year term and made it consecutive to a 10-year sentence for attempting to rob the Citgo gas station in Westminster Shopping Center on May 7, 1999. He left without money but stole seven packs of cigarettes, court records show.
Burns also imposed a consecutive eight-year term for the theft of $2,595 in property from a shed in Westminster on Nov. 18, 1998.
