A D.C. man accused of posing as a Pepco worker during two home invasions in Maryland has pleaded guilty to one of them.
Craig S. Brooks, 50, pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree assault in a robbery in Glen Burnie in May.
Brooks was sentenced to 25 years in prison without parole, said Kristin Fleckenstein, a spokesperson for the Anne Arundel state's attorney.
According to Anne Arundel police, the victim said Brooks told her he was from Pepco and was there to check on a gas leak. Police say Brooks then pointed a gun at the victim, tied her up and demanded cash.
Brooks also allegedly posed as a Pepco worker in a Prince George's County home invasion, in which a man was killed.
