Former Penn State student convicted of theft, found not guilty of burglary

A former Penn State student was convicted Thursday of stealing items from several dorm rooms.

Joseph Kuncienski, 19, of Massachusetts, was found guilty of misdemeanor counts of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.

He was acquitted on more serious burglary charges.

Kuncienski was caught taking money from a room when a student set up his laptop to record the room after previous thefts, prosecutors said.
