Burglar Who Learned How To Steal From TV Show Sentenced 12 Years

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - A burglar who says he learned his trade by
watching cable TV is heading to prison for 12 years.

36-year-old Michael Hobbs pleaded guilty to a string of
burglaries in central Kentucky.

Police say he learned how to break into homes by watching a
Discovery Channel TV show. The show featured two ex-convicts who
show property owners how vulnerable they are to theft.

Hobbs was sentenced in Madison County this week on six burglary
convictions.
