JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Mexico man has been sentenced to prison Tuesday in connection with a September 2019 pawn shop burglary.
26-year-old Tyler Hilderman has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Hilderman pleaded guilty back in October for the burglary.
Hilderman and 21-year-old Alexander Mears faced charges related to stealing more than 60 firearms from Tiger Pawn in Columbia.
According to Mears’s plea agreement, the duo made a hole in the building’s wall in order to enter the pawnshop and steal the guns. Mears then handed the guns through the hole to Hilderman outside the building.
He has also been ordered to pay nearly $20,700 in restitution costs.
