Summerville Man Heading To Prison For Stealing DVD


A Summerville resident is heading to prison after stealing a DVD from Walmart, according to Chattooga County Superior Court records.
A Walmart employee caught 63-year-old Larry Joe Evans stealing a DVD entitled “La La Land” in April 2017. Now Evans has confessed to shoplifting and is heading to prison for a year for stealing the $19.96 item.
The sentence might seem a bit excessive. However, this isn’t Evans first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh, eighth or ninth or tenth time answering a theft charge.
His sticky finger days started back in 1985 when he shoplifted an item in Floyd County, according to court records. His crime spree ranged from Floyd, Bartow and Gordon counties to thefts in Hamilton County, Tennessee, according to court records.
