2nd burglar in statewide crimes pleads guilty


Guilty pleas by the second of two men who carried out burglaries across the state are expected to help return hundreds of thousands of dollars of stolen possessions.

Mark Missino of Waterford pleaded guilty at Stamford Superior Court on Wednesday to five counts of burglary and violating the state's Corrupt Organizations and Racketeering Activity act.

The charges carry a maximum 65-year prison term, but the plea agreement calls for 25 years and five years' probation. He's been held on a nearly $1.7 million bond since his arrest in December 2010.

Missino's co-defendant, Bernard McAllister of Lisbon, has pleaded guilty to state and federal charges and is to be sentenced on Nov. 22

Missino agreed to waive any rights to property seized in storage units containing hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of stolen goods.
