Baltimore teen sentenced to one year for Columbia robberies

A Baltimore teen who pleaded guilty to a pair of commercial smash-and-grab-style burglaries in Columbia was sentenced last week to one year in prison, according to State's attorney spokesman Wayne Kirwan.

Davon Alexander Jones, 19, of the 6400 block of Laurelton Drive, was sentenced to two consecutive 15-year sentences with all but one year suspended in Howard County Circuit Court on Friday, March 29, Kirwan said.

Jones was charged in connection with the May 30 burglaries of Hans Cleaners, located in the 6900 block of Oakland Mills Road, and Sushi King, located in the 6400 block of Gorman Road.

Jones' accomplice, Sylvester Joseph Johnson, 34 of the 3300 block of Rogers Avenue in Baltimore, was sentenced to 15 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in both incidents as well as a third incident that same evening.

At the time of their arrest in June, Jones and Johnson were implicated in a total of 12 commercial burglaries, police said.
