NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) – A 38-year-old South Carolina man will now spend 10 years in prison for breaking into five churches in 2018.
WIS-TV reports Terrance Chisolm pleaded guilty to five counts of second-degree burglary and was sentenced on Thursday.
The Eighth Circuit Solicitor’s Office says Chisolm broke into five churches in Laurens and Newberry counties. During those break-ins, Chisolm stole computers, flat-screen televisions, and other electronic items.
Officials say Chisolm left a tire iron at one church and a milk carton at another. Authorities found those items and discovered Chisolm’s DNA on them.
Chisolm has two prior convictions for burglary.
