Sam's Club Red Kettle Thieves Sentenced

Posted: Updated:

An Albemarle County judge convicted all four people involved in the Christmas-time theft of a Salvation Army red kettle.

Emory Sliger, James Shifflett, and Rhonda Johnson were all found guilty Tuesday on a variety of charges. Lawrence Egnor, the bell ringer who police first thought was the victim, was convicted of embezzlement earlier this month.

Johnson is the only one to escape jail time. The others will spend anywhere from 30 to 90 days behind bars.

Surveillance video from the Sam's Club on Route 29 caught the theft on camera back on November 30. Police arrested the four several days later.
