Western Pennsylvania Man Jailed for 5 Break-ins at Liquor Store


By Kelli Sutterman

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh man has been jailed on charges that he broke into the same liquor store five times — most recently after he had just be released on bond for the first four break-ins.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 40-year-old Stephen Lamm, who remained in the Allegheny County Jail on Friday.

Police say they arrested Lamm outside a downtown liquor store early Thursday morning after responding to a report of broken glass. Police say two bottles of vodka fell out of Lamm's coat after he was arrested.

WTAE-TV says surveillance video showed Lamm broke into the same store on Jan. 27, Jan. 29, Jan. 30 and Feb. 1, when he was arrested and charged for those four break-ins. A district judge released Lamm from jail on those charges a few days before Thursday's break-in.
