Silvester Ranard Brewer was sentenced June 20 to 20 years for one count of burglary, 10 years each for two counts theft by taking felony, and 12 months for driving while his license was suspended.
Count two is to run consecutive with count one and all other counts are to run consecutive for a total of 30 years, with the first three years to be served in confinement. The remainder of sentence may be served on probation.
The three years Brewer was sentenced to serve in prison was as a recidivist, which means he will not be eligible for parole until the full three years are served.
Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway said Brewer stole an axle and sold it for scrap metal. He said the owner of the axle noticed the theft and deputies found footprints at the scene of the crime belonging to Brewer.
