SPARTANBURG — A local man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to more than 85 charges related to copper thefts around Spartanburg.
Authorities told the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg that 27-year-old Jackie Anderson Jr. also violated probation, so he won't be eligible for parole.
Prosecutors said Anderson took plumbing and air conditioner parts, mostly from low-income housing. They said the thefts did nearly $200,000 worth of damage to get about $5,000 of copper.
