Marlon D. Williams, 29, pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree burglary and two counts of petty larceny. 

 

A Spartanburg man received a 17-year prison sentence Monday for breaking into a local home and stealing property.

Marlon D. Williams, 29, pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree burglary and two counts of petty larceny. The burglary occurred April 7, 2020 at a South Highpoint Road home. A security camera at the victim’s home showed Williams forcing open the rear door of the residence about 9:30 a.m.

Williams took two televisions and jewelry before fleeing the crime scene. Spartanburg police used the surveillance video to compile a detailed description of Williams.

Police arrested Williams near the crime scene the following day. He was caught with the stolen jewelry in his possession.

Williams’ prior criminal record included convictions for second-degree burglary and petty larceny. Circuit Judge Grace Knie issued a 17-year prison sentence on the burglary charge and concurrent 10-year prison sentences on the petty larceny charges.

Williams will serve 85 percent of the prison sentence before he is eligible for release.

Assistant Solicitor Spenser Smith prosecuted the case.
