The 20-year-old Elkins man who allegedly broke into Elkins Motorsports and tried to steal a motorcycle pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors Tuesday in Randolph County Magistrate Court.

Magistrate Rob Elbon accepted a plea agreement in which Anthony Scott pleaded guilty to petit larceny and conspiracy to commit petit larceny, both misdemeanors. Scott was originally charged with one felony count of breaking and entering, one felony count of attempt to commit grand larceny and one felony count of conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

Under the plea agreement reached by Randolph County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Lori Gray and Scott's attorney, William "Ty" Nestor, Scott will be required to participate in the Randolph County Community Corrections program for one year in lieu of jail time. He must also pay $500 in restitution to Elkins Motorsports in addition to magistrate court costs.

According to a previous report, Scott allegedly told police that he and three juveniles entered Elkins Motorsports at 4 p.m. Oct. 28 and attempted to steal a blue motorcycle. Scott also reportedly said the four stole nine keys to four-wheelers.
