(KAIR)--A Saint Mary's, Kansas man, accused of costly, Atchison County burglaries in 2020, is going to prison.

According to a release from Atchison County Attorney Sherri Becker, Curt Vandevelde, last week, was sentenced in Atchison County District Court to just under 7-years of incarceration.

On June 1, Vandevelde, following a jury trial, was found guilty on all charges, including aggravated burglary of a residence, burglary of a non-dwelling, burglary of a motor vehicle, criminal trespass, and three counts of theft.

In one case, during Vandevelde's burglary spree, a homeowner awoke to find him inside the home. Vanvelde fled. He was later, at another crime scene, found sleeping in a shed. Awakened by the homeowners, Vandevelde again ran, this time escaping into a nearby tree line by the time the Atchison County Sheriff's Office arrived. The agency, through use of it's K9 Officer, was able to track and locate Vandevelde, who was taken into custody and arrested.
