Tylor Austin Angstadt, 26, of Spout Spring, pleaded guilty to charges related to a break-in and theft at Martin’s Market on Promise Land Road in Appomattox County.
Angstadt was charged with breaking and entering, grand larceny and possession of ammunition (without a gun).
Prosecution evidence states that on Sept. 10, 2020, Appomattox County Sheriff’s Office investigators responded to Martin’s Market after a call from the store’s owner regarding an overnight break-in.
The owner identified the missing items that were valued at more than $500 in total. Investigators went to a trailer where Angstadt resided and noticed items from the store. Also found in the search was a box of shotgun shells, which Angstadt was not permitted to have because he is a nonviolent felon with a 2017 drug conviction.
Circuit Court Judge Andy Nelson ordered a pre-sentence report. Angstadt is scheduled for sentencing June 17.
