GavelA serial shoplifter will spend about 60 days in jail as part of a plea agreement. 30 year old, Joshua Aaron Thurmer of Madison Heights pleaded guilty and admitted to stealing more than $10,000 in merchandise over multiple dates in April and June. Thurmer had faced 14 counts of grand larceny for the items stolen at Lowe’s and Walmart on Rt.29 in Amherst County. The judge, on Thursday, suspended all but two months of a 28 year sentence—but ordered Thurmer to pay more than $9,600 in restitution.
