PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A Massachusetts man accused of breaking into a restaurant, munching on pizza and guzzling beer before making off with $150 has been sentenced to a year of probation.

Daulton Young, of Pittsfield, was connected to the break-in last summer at the East Side Cafe by police who traced two calls from the restaurant's phone to Young's girlfriend.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that a judge Tuesday continued the breaking and entering and larceny charges without a finding for a year to avoid entering a felony conviction on the 21-year-old's record. Young was found guilty of a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

Cafe employees arrived the next day to discover a half-eaten pizza, an empty beer bottle and two cash registers that had been pilfered.

His attorney says Young has an alcohol problem.
