Adam D. Simpkin, 20, Bainbridge, was indicted on the charges of burglary in the third degree, a class D felony; and petit larceny, a class A misdemeanor, on July 16 of this year.
It is alleged on June 7 of this year, Simpkin knowingly and unlawfully entered China King in Sherburne and stole approximately $1,000 in cash and an iPhone 3s.
