ANDREWS, S.C. — A South Carolina man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a burglary at a convenience store.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that 38-year-old Sharon Levi McCray entered the plea Wednesday to second-degree burglary. According to a news release from the 15th Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office, Judge Benjamin Culbertson sentenced him to serve 10 years.

The release says authorities were called to Corner Shop Store/Sunoco, where they found a concrete block that was used to break the front door. Officers arrested McCray after they found him carrying a plastic bag with 45 packs of cigarettes valued at $315.
