Two Sentenced in Multi-State Burglary Case
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Two men were sentenced on Friday on charges related to a string of thefts last fall.

Nineteen-year-old Christopher Peevyhouse and eighteen-year-old Anthony Romans appeared in McCracken Circuit Court for sentencing related to multiple burglaries committed in McCracken County and in Weakley County, Tennessee. 

Judge Tim Kaltenbach sentenced Peevyhouse to ten years each for three counts of first degree burglary, five years each for eight counts of theft of a firearm, five years each for theft by unlawful taking $500-$10,000, and one year for one count of recieving stolen property under $500. He also sentenced Romans to ten years each for two counts of first degree burglary, five years each for six counts of theft of a firearm, five years each for two counts of unlawful taking $500-$10,000, and one year for one count of recieving stolen property under $10,000.

Kaltenbach ruled that the sentences will run concurrently, so both men will serve ten years in prison.

On October 22nd, McCracken County Sheiff's Deputies investigated a burglary at a home on Bryant Ford Road and later arrested Peevyhouse after a traffic stop. Items found in the vehicle revealed that he and Romans had committed other burglaries in Tennessee.
