A Harrisonville man charged with stealing from multiple Walmart stores in Missouri, including the Jefferson City store on West Stadium Boulevard, has been sentenced to prison for charges he was facing in the Jefferson City case.

Charles Newton, 42, pleaded guilty during a Tuesday hearing before Cole County Judge Dan Green to three counts of felony stealing.

He was sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay $1,339 in restitution.

Newton stole several Dyson and Shark Robot vacuum cleaners, once in November 2017 and twice in January 2018, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

Court records show Newton has six prior convictions for stealing.

Authorities said Newton was a suspect in several Missouri Walmart theft cases including stores in Columbia, Boonville, Moberly, Marshall, Sedalia and the Kansas City area.
