KNOXVILLE — A judge in Marion County sentenced a Knoxville man to prison for a Pella burglary earlier this year.
Keanu Eugene Cowman-Myers, 22, of Knoxville, pled guilty to third-degree burglary, a class D felony. He was sentenced in a videoconference to five years in prison, which will be served alongside an aggravated misdemeanor charge in another case.
A victim in Pella reported that Cowman-Myers entered their home and stole more than $400 in cash. According to court records, the homeowners noticed the money was missing on Feb. 3, and no one else had been home that day. The homeowners installed a surveillance camera and caught Cowman-Meyers returning to the home on Feb. 26, but he noticed the camera.
Court records say Cowman-Meyers was also on GPS monitoring through his probation and parole, and that monitoring placed him at the scene for approximately nine minutes on Feb. 3.
