Handyman sentenced for stealing items from home

A Newton man was sentenced to at least seven years and three months in prison this week after he was convicted in Catawba County Superior Court of felony larceny and other offenses, District Attorney James Gaither Jr. said.

Larry Allen Boone, 39, also was found guilty of five counts each of felony obtaining property by false pretense and misdemeanor possession of stolen goods. He also was convicted of being a habitual felon.

Judge Jeffrey Hunt sentenced Boone to no more than 9.5 years in prison.

In fall 2011, Boone stole items from a home where he was working as a handyman and then pawned the items at local pawn shops, Gaither said.

Hickory police Officer Lance Bean handled the investigation, and Assistant District Attorney Al Reeder prosecuted the case.
