A former assistant manager for the Shoppers Food Warehouse store in Westminster pleaded guilty to a theft scheme yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court and was ordered to repay the company for 2,549 hours of leave for which he was paid but to which he was not entitled, said Senior Assistant State's Attorney Melissa O. Hockensmith. John Lawrence Helt, 45, of Frederick received a suspended three-year sentence from Judge J. Barry Hughes, who ordered that Helt repay $51,371.01. If he repays the money within a year, the judge said he would give Helt probation before judgment, which would eliminate the conviction from his otherwise clean record.

Mayor Lloyd R. Helt Jr. is threatening to send another tea bag to the Carroll County commissioners in protest against the county's proposed landfill tipping fees.The county's offer of a $2 reduction in tipping fees to the town, which currently recycles about 23 percent of its solid waste, is unacceptable, Helt said at Monday night's Town Council meeting."This is a travesty," he said. "It will destroy our program. We need a $10 differential to make the system work; we cannot accept the $2 figure."
