Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A man who stole almost two dozen pit bulls from a Columbia animal shelter will spend six years in jail.
A judge handed down a sentence this week for Dezmond Jones after he plead guilty to six counts of burglary second degree.
Between January 29th and February 12 of this year, 21 dogs were taken from the Columbia Animal Shelter. Officers conducted a stakeout on February 12, and arrested two men, who later implicated Jones.
