---- — CLINTON — A District Court Judge gave deferred judgments to a Clinton man arrested for attempting to burglarize area businesses.

Caleb Fisher, 24, 2701 Pershing Blvd., pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary and third-degree attempted burglary and received a two-year deferred judgment. Civil penalties of $750 and $625 were suspended.

According to court documents, Clinton police responded at 1:20 a.m. on June 1, to a burglary alarm at the Roman Trade Pawn Shop, 412 N. Second St, where Fisher entered the building and set off the alarm. He fled before police arrived on scene.

The affidavit continues that officers responded to someone breaking into This-And-That 2nd Hand Store, 706 S. Fourth St., arriving on scene at 1:48 a.m. to observe Fisher walking away from the building, smudged with dust and dirt. His car was parked at the north side of the business, with an open duffle bag containing a tire jack in the back of the vehicle, according to court documents.

Fisher must continue substance abuse treatment and receive a mental health evaluation. He is required to maintain employment and pay court costs and court-appointed attorney fees.
