A man already serving time in prison for burglary and robbery was convicted this week on six additional burglary counts, including three involving businesses in Lake Oswego.
Anthony Gordon Brown was sentenced Wednesday in Clackamas County Circuit Court to 180 months in prison for six burglaries that took place in late 2014 and early 2015. They included incidents at Pizza Schmizza, Laughing Planet and Go Fish Go Sushi on State Street in Lake Oswego, as well as at Casa Ixtapa, Jimmy John's and Still House Pub in Oregon City.
Shortly after those middle-of-the-night burglaries occurred, officers and detectives from Lake Oswego and Oregon City determined that the incidents were related. But according to OCPD Capt. Shaun Davis, they were unable to identify a suspect until after they arrested Brown in March 2015 as he fled from an interrupted burglary at the Oregon City Coffee Rush.
Brown, 53, was later convicted for that incident and sentenced to prison; on Wednesday, he was found guilty on the six additional burglary charges.
