UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A man convicted of breaking into three dorm rooms at the University of Maryland College Park campus has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Thirty-four-year-old Sentayehu Negussie was sentenced Tuesday in Prince George’s County Circuit Court.

Prosecutors say on Feb. 7, Negussie broke into a room in Centreville Hall and stole cash and a credit card. Authorities say five days later, Negussie broke into a room in Ellicot Hall, stole a credit card, then broke into a second room in the dorm.

Prosecutors say one of the room’s residents found Negussie asleep in a pile of clothes on the floor.

State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in a news release that Negussie has a criminal history that dates back 15 years, and this most recent offense is his 17th conviction.
