A Pecos man has been sentenced after a botched burglary attempt back in February.

47-year old Richard Adkins cut a deal with prosecutors.

He'll spend 6 years behind bars after admitting to trying to rob the La Tienda Thriftway with 2 other men.

Those 2 men were arrested outside the store, but Adkins hid inside for 15 hours.

He ended up getting caught by store employees when he jumped from the ceiling to the floor.
