A Macon man who it appears has a propensity for storage buildings received a 20-year sentence for his crimes in Jones County Superior Court last week.

Willie Bernard Marshall was sentenced to 20 years for each two counts of burglary. The sentences will run concurrent for a total of 20 years and may be served on probation. The court sentenced Marshall as a recidivist.

Marshall is tied to four separate incidents involving burglaries of storage buildings in Jones County from Aug. 16, 2008, to Oct. 22, 2008. He was indicted by a grand jury for seven counts of burglary in February of 2011.

In a report by Deputy Dustin Harris Aug. 16, 2008, thefts from several storage units located in a facility on Joycliff Road were reported and miscellaneous items missing.

Capt. James Clark filed a report Sept. 3, 2008, concerning thefts in a storage facility on Mattie Wells Drive. A surveillance video at the facility showed a red Ford Explorer involved and a short male driver.
