A Florida man who stole $600 worth of cigarettes was sentenced on Friday to 20 years in prison, according to the Pensacola News Journal.
> An Escambia County jury in August convicted Robert Spellman, 48, of burglary and grand theft for the Dec. 28 incident.
> He went into the Circle K in the 200 block of West Cervantes Street and took 10 cartons of cigarettes from a locked manager's office in the stock room.
> He was found nearby, matched a description of the suspect, was wearing the same clothing and had the cigarettes, according to the State Attorney's Office.
This was not Spellman’s first run-in with the law: prior to his arrest, he had racked up 14 felony and 31 misdemeanor convictions, which the Journal noted qualified Spellman as a habitual felony offender.
