Burglar sentenced to 20 years in prison
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Robert Lee Howard will spend the next 20 years in prison for stealing antiques and trying to sell them.
In 2011, police say Howard broke into a home on Ephrata Court.
The homeowner passed away in 2007 and left the property and the antiques inside to her granddaughter.
When the granddaughter stopped by the house, she found several antique items missing.
The granddaughter spotted the antiques at Howard's yard sale and contacted police.
Howard was sentenced Friday.
