CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia man who admitted stealing expensive lawn ornaments has been sentenced to four months in jail.

Media outlets report 39-year-old Christopher Derricks of Sissonville apologized in court before being sentenced on a grand larceny charge Thursday.

Court records show yard sculptures and lawn ornaments were reported stolen last spring in Charleston, including a metal wheel valued at nearly $2,000. Dozens of confiscated items have since been returned to their owners.

A Kanawha County circuit judge sentenced Derricks to up to 10 years in prison but said he would suspend the sentence in September.
