JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A 21-year-old man who broke into a Dollar General pleaded guilty to the crime and will spend two years in jail.

Marshall Howard, of Goodman, was sentenced Friday by Holmes County Circuit Court Judge Janie Lewis on one count of business burglary. He was sentenced to five years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections with two of those years to serve, three years suspended, and three years post-release supervision.

Howard was arrested by the Pickens Police Department in January 2017 for breaking into a Pickens Dollar General with another person by using a shopping cart. The alarm alerted police to the scene, and although Howard and his accomplice were no longer there, police found items missing including cigarettes, wine, and cell phones.

A tip led police to Howard that day, at which point he was arrested and charged.
