A onetime guard for a retirement facility in Albemarle County could spend a year behind bars for stealing large amounts of jewelry. A circuit court judge sentenced 25-year-old Howard Carey (pictured) for stealing from residents of Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge. Carey was arrested last year. He was given a total of 80 years for eight felony thefts, but the judge has suspended 79 years of his sentence.
