HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A former supervisor of the Harrisburg police vice unit plans to plead guilty to charges he stole more than $22,000 from an evidence locker, according to court documents.

Sean Cornick agreed to admit to two theft-related counts, according to the plea agreement filed Thursday in federal court.

Cornick faces a maximum of 11 years in prison, but sentencing guidelines in the case call for 6-12 months imprisonment. He also faces a fine of $350,000 and three years of supervised release.

The plea agreement additionally calls for Cornick to pay $22,046.93 restitution to the Harrisburg Bureau of Police and $300 restitution to the FBI. He agreed to resign from the police department within 10 days of the guilty plea.

The agreement must be approved by a judge.

Cornick was a 19-year veteran of the police department and attained the rank of corporal before he was arrested in October 2016 on allegations he stole money collected from undercover operations.

According to a criminal complaint, Cornick was videotaped stealing money he believed had been seized in a drug investigation.

He was suspended with pay pending the outcome of his case.
