JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro man has been sentenced to decades behind bars after a jury's conviction.

Second Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington announced Wednesday that Michael Crenshaw, 36, of Jonesboro was convicted of residential burglary late Tuesday afternoon.

A circuit judge then sentenced Crenshaw to 30 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction.

Although he was convicted on one count of residential burglary, there are "several pending counts" of residential burglary on the court's docket, according to Ellington.

Crenshaw was arrested in July 2015 after Jonesboro police said they found several stolen items during a parole search. Some on the items include television sets, cell phones, laptops and jewelry worth several thousand dollars.

At the time of the arrest police believed they could solve at least 18 burglaries with the evidence they recovered.
