HART — A 33-year-old Rothbury man who broke into a Shelby car wash business last June was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Sept. 12, to serve five months of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny.

David Barco Quintero, of 2423 W. Meadow Lane, pleaded guilty to the charge last July. His second-offense habitual offender designation was dismissed in a plea deal.

Quintero was arrested by the Shelby Police Department after breaking into a car-wash business on State Street and then fleeing from the officer on foot.

Shelby Police Chief Terry TenBrink previously said Quintero used a pry bar and hammer to pry open the door to the building and also damaged a coin machine. Officer Josh Karafa was on patrol and caught him in the act at approximately 3 a.m., TenBrink said. He took off running when Karafa approached, but was apprehended a short distance down the road.

Sentencing guidelines for his conviction are 10-23 months, said Judge Anthony A. Monton, who also ordered that Quintero serve two years probation. He was given credit for two days served in jail.
