A Cherryville woman has been sentenced to at least 5 1/2 years in prison after being convicted this week of habitual offender status.

Tonya Scronce Bolick, 43, was sentenced to between 66 months and 104 months in prison. She was convicted on two counts of felony breaking and entering, two counts of larceny and habitual breaking and entering status.

Prosecutors said Bolick broke into two Catawba County homes in September 2012 and stole more than $5,000 in jewelry and other items.

North Carolina prison records show Bolick also was convicted of breaking and entering and felony charges stemming from Lincoln County incidents in December 2009 and April 2010. Steve Lyttle
