ST. CLOUD -- A Foley man has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for breaking into a Rockville bar last July.  Thirty-eight-year-old Jason Carson will also get 226 days credit for time already served in jail.

Carson pleaded guilty to felony 3rd-degree burglary for the break-in at Stoney's Bar in Rockville July 22nd. He is also charged with several counts of burglary in Benton County.

Carson is accused of breaking-in and stealing tools and a truck from Foley Lumber in December 2017, taking cash and bar items from Goodfella's Bar in Ronneby and Mr. Jim's in Foley last July and a chainsaw and power drill from a home in Foley last March.
