ALBANY, N.Y. – Police say a man who committed four separate burglaries at various residences in the city was sentenced to 20 years to life in state prison.

Officials say 49-year-old Terrance Cole was found guilty of four Counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, all Class C Violent Felonies.

The jury found that Cole was guilty of committing four separate burglaries in March and April at various residences in the City of Albany, including on Thornton Street, North Main Avenue, Third Street, and Kent Street.

Officials say Cole entered the residences unlawfully by breaking in the rear entry ways, and then stole jewelry, electronics, and other portable valuables. According to police, Cole then attempted to sell some of the stolen items at local pawn re-sale shops in the City of Albany.  Albany Police became notified when some of the property matched items that were reported stolen during the burglaries.  A search warrant executed at his residence uncovered several of the stolen items.

Officials say this is Cole’s fourth burglary related felony conviction.
