DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia pawn shop owner is heading to prison after he admitted to stalking and harassing a police detective.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports (https://bit.ly/1ZRnqoI ) 49-year-old John D’Angelo was sentenced on Tuesday to one to two years behind bars. A judge says the Lower Southampton man developed a sophisticated plan to harass, stalk and intimidate Detective Gerald Scott.

D’Angelo pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a computer, retaliation and related offenses. He admitted to creating anonymous Craigslist posts advertising a number of items for free at Scott’s home.

Prior to the postings, Scott had cited D’Angelo’s pawn shop, causing it to shut down for three weeks. Authorities say D’Angelo created the listings during that time.

D’Angelo says he’s sorry and can learn from what he’s done.
