DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A Dothan man convicted in a convenience store burglary and a purse snatching has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The Dothan Eagle reports 28-year-old Melvin Dupree Culver (https://bit.ly/1jzV2Xh ) pleaded guilty Thursday to robbery and burglary in the May 2013 incident. Investigators say Culver stole 30 packs of cigarettes from a convenience store and stole a woman’s purse from her car after she refused to give him money.

Court records show the man has six felony convictions on his record and pleaded guilty to drug charges in October 2013.
