A Roanoke man will serve six years of a 30-year prison sentence for stealing guns, coins and electronics from three Franklin County homes in February.

Brandon Scott Williams, 21, was sentenced to five years in prison on each of three grand larcenies and five years in prison on each of three burglaries.

Franklin County Circuit Court Judge W.N. Alexander II suspended 24 years of the sentence.

Williams was also sentenced to five years probation and ordered to be of good behavior for 40 years.

Williams was also ordered to make restitution of $7,400 to the victims.

Williams was evaluated for the Virginia Department of Corrections' Detention and Diversion Program but was found ineligible, a probation officer testified at Williams' sentencing hearing Friday.

During the hearing, Alexander told Williams, "You've been in trouble since you were 14. You've ignored all the help that was offered to you. It's hard to understand."

Williams admitted to stealing numerous firearms, a coin collection and a computer from residences on Wirtz Road, Hardy Road and Coopers Cove Road on Feb. 2, 6 and 21, according to Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Dwight Rudd.
