Series of auto burglaries nets 60 days

By Michael R. Moser

CROSSVILLE — A Fairfield Glade man charged in a string of auto burglaries and credit card thefts entered a sentencing agreement that resulted in a four-year suspended sentence with 60 additional days to serve in jail with the balance to be served on probation.

Jack Eugene Lowery, 46, whose last known address was listed as Lakeshire Dr., entered his plea before Judge Leon Burns on Oct. 28 at what was supposed to be a scheduled motion and bond hearing.

Most of the auto burglaries and thefts took place in the parking lots along Peavine Rd. He was on parole when some of the thefts took place.

Lowery was facing four counts of auto burglary, four counts of theft less than $500 and three counts of fraudulent use of a debit/credit card.

Lowery pleaded guilty to four counts of auto burglary, an E classification felony, which will result in the possibility of an enhanced sentence should he get into trouble after serving this latest sentence. All remaining charges were dismissed.

Lowery is also being given credit for 62 days served between Aug. 27 and Oct. 28.
