HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A Hutchinson teenager has admitted burglarizing two churches and a grocery store while he was on probation for a string of similar break-ins.

KWBW reports (http://bit.ly/1coRUpR ) that 17-year-old Joshua Hickey pleaded guilty to the burglaries Friday in Reno County District Court. Judge Tim Chambers scheduled sentencing for Oct. 4.

Hickey was granted probation in November 2012 after pleading guilty to 14 burglaries of Hutchinson churches and businesses.

But he was sent to jail for 30 days last December for violating probation by failing to report his residence to a Community Corrections supervisor.

Hickey left jail in January and began a new burglary spree within seven hours. The grocery store and one of the churches he burglarized were among those he had broken into previously.
