A 21-year-old will spend the next 15 years in prison for stealing jewelry from a Hudson Valley home.

On Wednesday in Ulster County Court, 21-year-old Edward McCoy of Kingston was sentenced to 15 years prison following a burglary at a Kingston home in October 2017.

On Oct. 23, 2017, a Kingston mother and father left their home with two young kids to go to school and work. After the four left, a remaining daughter, a college student, heard noises coming from inside the home as she laid in bed.

Soon after McCoy walked into the daughter's room, officials say. McCoy ran from the home after seeing the girl in bed. As McCoy was running, the daughter took a photo.

Members of the Kingston Police Department responded immediately and found McCoy a couple blocks away, still in possession of stolen jewelry from the house.
