Unwanted attic dweller guilty of six charges

By Sheena Delazio

WILKES-BARRE – An Arkansas man who police said stole food and clothing from a family in Plains Township while secretly living in their attic pleaded guilty to several charges Tuesday.

Stanley W. Carter, 21, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary, two counts of criminal trespassing and two counts of receiving stolen property before Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas Judge Hugh Mundy.

Carter was arrested on Dec. 26 after police said he had been staying in the attic for about a week and entering the home, owned by Stacey Ferrance, by going through a hatch in the ceiling when she and her family were out.

Police said once in the home, Carter stole food, clothing and Christmas presents, including a laptop computer he used to write his own “Stanley Christmas list.”
