A Loudoun County Jury convicted a Herndon man June 17 of burglary and grand larceny and recommended more than seven years in prison.
Timothy Irvin Mears, 37, was convicted of breaking into Bowman’s Plumbing of Sterling and stealing $210 in March 2012. Mears was fired from the company six months earlier for theft and embezzlement.
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Jason Faw presented surveillance tape footage of Mears entering the building through a side door and leaving through the front lobby.
Mears had a previous criminal history, with prior convictions for assault and battery, drug possession, theft and embezzlement. He was recently convicted of accessory to burglary and grand larceny and receiving stolen property in Fairfax County Circuit Court.
Mears is scheduled for sentencing in Fairfax June 28 and in Loudoun Sept. 27.
