HICKORY, N.C. -- A Hickory man is now behind bars, convicted of stealing clothes and body lotion.

Tommy Lee McCombs, 49, will serve at least 8.5 years in prison for the crimes that occurred in December 2013 and February 2014.

The two thefts totaled less than $50, but the misdemeanor crimes were elevated because of prior convictions of misdemeanor larceny.

McCombs was also sentenced for possession of cocaine.
