JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A judge in Jonesboro has sentenced a man to six years in prison for breaking into a convenience store and stealing lottery tickets.
Thirty-year-old Robert Dewayne Buford of Jonesboro pleaded guilty Friday to theft and commercial burglary.
Buford was arrested after a Kum & Go convenience store was burglarized Oct. 17. Officials say $2,400 in lottery tickets were taken.
Circuit Judge Cindy Thyer suspended an additional four-year sentence on the condition that Buford testify against an accomplice.
The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery can track each ticket and stolen tickets are easily voided.
