BECKLEY - A Shady Spring man who admitted to stealing a high-powered rifle from a Raleigh County residence last year was sentenced to almost five years in jail.
Cameron Taylor, 25, was given four years and nine months behind bars after he pleaded guilty in September to stealing a firearm. According to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin, Taylor stole an AR-50 rifle from a residence near White Oak on April 24, 2013.
This case was brought forward as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a nationwide commitment to reduced gun crime in the U.S.
