WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) -

A Walterboro man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for breaking into a home while the family slept and stealing thousands of dollars worth of electronics.

Halden Hollman, 26, was convicted on one count of first-degree burglary on Tuesday, February 26.

According to a release, Hollman broke into a home on Woodland Terrace on August 30, 2012 while the family was sleeping. He stole a television, computer, music device, and cash.

"When the police searched his home, they found a Circuit City, but with much cheaper prices," said assistant solicitor Steve Knight of the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office. "He had every electronic device you can imagine and would sell the items he stole."

Officials believe Hollman was involved in a number of burglaries and car break-ins throughout the area. Several additional cases against Hollman are pending.

The Walterboro Police Department was able to return some of the stolen items to their original owners.

"In this case, the reality of what Hollman did is very scary," Knight said. "There were people sleeping in that house. I am glad we put a stop to his enterprise before someone got hurt or more people were victimized in such a nightmarish manner."

Hollman must serve at least 85-percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
